Report – Ligue 1 club targeting a move for Arsenal striker

Folarin Balogun is very likely to leave Arsenal again on loan in this campaign.

The striker spent the second half of last season temporarily at Middleborough.

He got plenty of playing time which his development needs at the moment. He has returned to the Emirates, but Arsenal has signed Gabriel Jesus to increase competition for a place on the team.

This means he will struggle to play again in this campaign and should look to leave.

He might go outside England this time with a new report linking him with a move to the French Ligue 1.

A report on The Sun says Reims are targeting a loan move for him as a replacement for Hugo Ekitike, whom they have just sold to PSG.

Ekitike is also a very young striker and they believe Balogun will be a perfect replacement for him in this campaign.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Folarin will struggle to play if he remains at the Emirates, so a move away again is the solution that will make everyone happy.

The striker has the quality to prove his worth for the Gunners in the future, but he needs to develop further, and he will only achieve that by playing regularly.

  1. They should first extend his contract before they send him on loan other wise we may end up losing him in future or it will be hard for us to negotiate a new deal. Other wise it’s ok if we send him to league 1 .

  2. I think a move to a top division side(wherever it may be) is a lot better than an english championship side.

    1. But he has to move to a Club where he is more or less guaranteed regular games otherwise any loan becomes counter productive.From what I saw of him at Middlesborough he is not of EPL standard, and, unfortunately, may never be.

      1. He’ll get enough chance to impress by playing regularly in so many teams in ligue 1,serie a,bundesliga,eredivisie and the likes,a loan move to a club in either of those leagues will be a lot better he has a lot of potential just gotta work on his semi long range strikes at least cos it’s amateurish and like you said not of pl standard but i believe he’ll improve a lot more playing for a club in the top tier.

  3. I think Reims is a good club but it would be better to have him in a club that plays a european cup. As a parisian born and bread I don’t want him in Marseille but Nice or Monaco might be good.
