Fabrizio Romano has claimed that he expects news to emerge on the future of Folarin Balogun ‘in the coming days’, with Arsenal still keen to tie him down to a new deal.
The forward is claimed to still hold a strong relationship with the club which he loves, but his agent has supposedly shown resistance to his client signing a new deal, with both Eddie Nketiah and Balogun both vying for minutes in the same role, and both under the same agency the Elite Project Group Ltd.
Folarin is yet to start a senior match for our side, but has impressed coming off the bench in the Europa League this term.
Fans no doubt want to see more minutes for their young future star, but the club needs to sort out the 19 year-old’s future before we are likely to see him feature again.
In The Know journalist Fabrizio Romano reiterates that the player just wants to play football, and that we should expect to find out more on what his future will hold over the coming days.
Fabrizio told his Here We Go Podcast: “Balogun wants to play. He only wants to play. If he’s going to play, there’s chances for Arsenal,” he said.
“But if he’s not going to play, then there are chances for other clubs. He’s in a good relationship with the club cause he loves Arsenal. I think in the coming days we will understand more on his future. Keep an eye on Bundesliga. Some German clubs are really interested but not RB Leipzig.”
Balogun can talk to clubs overseas over a potential free transfer at the end of the season once he enters into the final six months of his playing contract.
Do fans hold Balogun in higher regard than Nketiah?
