Balogun improves his market valuation ahead of showdown talks with Arsenal

Folarin Balogun has emerged as one of Arsenal’s most promising talents, particularly following his successful loan spell at Reims.

The young forward, who represents the United States internationally, had an impressive season in Ligue 1, scoring in double figures and proving his worth as a first-team player.

However, Arsenal may not be able to offer Balogun the playing time he desires, leading to the likelihood of him leaving the club on a permanent transfer. Several clubs have expressed interest in securing his services.

According to a report from Football London, Balogun’s market value may have increased by at least £1 million following his latest goal against Montpellier on the final day of the season. His sharp finishing ability demonstrated in that match could attract further attention and enhance his transfer prospects.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Balogun is likely to be sold this summer because scoring in France does not mean he will do the same in the Premier League.

We need to make as much money as possible from his departure so that we can strengthen other parts of our squad or sign a striker who will guarantee at least 20 league goals per season.

Balogun may not give us that, but the money we make from his departure can purchase a top player for us.

Now the season is over, it’s time for the summer Arsenal quiz from our friends at Dublin Arsenal – It’s always a laugh and helps while away the time while we wait for Arsenal’s first signings to come in!

  1. Without a faint show of doubt, the right decision for the Club at this time is to keep Balogun and ditch Nketiah.

    Nketiah’s 100K pw wages could be a stumbling block, but we could easily swallow some of it in order to accommodate Balogun.

    Not being ruthless, just tough. It will be worth it in the end.

    1. A fan told Evgunner a few days ago that Arsenal should Eddie on loan and replace him with Balogun, found it very interesting

      1. No-one is going to pay close to 100k salary for Eddie on loan which means we’d subsidise the majority of it while paying Balogun more as well. So 2 salaries for 1 player, not very smart IMO

  2. Balogun, is a generational talent. He knows when to hold up the ball, when to pass, and when to strike. He scores different kinds of goals, has good athletism, height and good composure. He should be given at least one season to prove his worth. Keeping both him and Nelson will be crucial for next season.

  3. Let Eddie leave pemantly with a 1st option to buy if he becomes good, can be used as make weight for Rice, WestHam need a forward and Eddi stays in London. Pushes the Value down abit or same with Brighton for Caicedo.

    Give Flo a chance as he’s proved he can do it in a mod table French team as the star. Nelson is leaving also so if Eddie does leave then will be plenty of chances for Balogun.

    Still think we need an our right bully goal scorer and Jesus can play the wings as he is dangerous there.

    Martinelli / Jesus & Saka / SmithRowe. That’s ok for the wings.

    Also keep Teirney he will ne needed and let;
    Elneny (I’d let him go, Teilimans Free)

    CF, RCB, CDM, CM
    That’s what we need & Saliba to a new deal.

  4. If AFC can get £35 million for Balogun they should jump at it he wouldn’t fit AFC’s style of play and alas the same could be said of Eddie both very good players but not world class.
    Man city have superman and Alvarus as back up and AFC need the same Jesus and another world class forward.


    That wont happen. Why get a player whos value fluctuates almost every week when you can get cash. If you pay either team maybe £60k plus a player would be more attractive.

  6. Remember SALIBA came through the same Liga… and we see him as world class now… why are we having doubts about Balogun now?
