Arteta wants Arsenal’s loanee to remain at his temporary home for one more season

Folarin Balogun is arguably Arsenal’s best loanee this season as the striker cannot stop scoring.

The youngster was sent on loan to Reims at the start of this term after struggling to break into the Gunners’ first team.

He has been in stunning form, having scored 5 goals and provided 2 assists in 8 Ligue 1 games so far.

This has impressed Arsenal, whose goal was to see him play as many minutes as possible.

As he continues to thrive in the French top flight, his long-term future is being discussed back in London.

Arsenal believe he would lead the line for them one day, but next season would be too soon.

Because of this, Jeunes Footeux says Mikel Arteta wants him to spend another season on loan at Reims.

The idea is he would pen a new long-term deal at the Emirates before heading back.

However, that will only happen if Reims keeps their top-flight status as they flirt close to the relegation zone now.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Balogun is a superb talent and we never really doubted if he would be in top form while at Reims.

He is proving us just right, and it is important he continues to play regularly.

Hopefully, Reims will maintain their top-flight status and re-sign him on loan in the summer.

  1. Well he clearly wasn’t ready for first team in the EPL at his last few appearances, but if he’s really that good then surely loan spells are ideal. The same thing worked out very well with Saliba, so maybe the same can happen here.

  2. i agree that he needs one more season on loan but not with Reims.I’m hoping that he keeps scoring and performing well so that next season he can get himself a move to another Ligue 1 that plays in Europe and fight at the top of the table,Marseille anyone??
