Arsenal loanee Folarin Balogun scored to help Middlesbrough to a 4-0 win over Peterborough this afternoon, continuing his fine form of recent weeks.
The youngster has six goals in the last four weeks, including three on international duty with the England U21 side, and the 20 year-old didn’t allow his time away from the club to disrupt his form.
His side were 1-0 up when the ball fell to him the box to fire home shortly after half-time to help them take a firm hold on the game, and help his side to close in on their potential promotion.
Balogun staying hot!! Flo is continuing to put himself in goal scoring positions. Confidence is pouring out of him. Love to see this progression from him. Some thought he’s best as a winger, but he’s proving them wrong. He’s so versatile. What a talent!

Could Balogun stake a claim for a first-team role at Arsenal next season?
No. It’s best for him to play for an average side or go back to the championship where he can get more minutes and get himself readier for the future
The gun-man, in fine form, firing on all cylinders, again.
I like the guy
Watch the headlines next year, ESR, Saka, Balogun, Hutchinson, Patino, Odegaard are all going to go to Liverpool
Of course they are, to play for Arsenal against Liverpool, win the game and then come back to London!
If he helps them gain promotion he should be loaned back to them so he can gain pl experience since he will be vital in their bid to stay up.an indirect reward for their help in moulding him.
He still has a lot to play for this season. Eight more games then hopefully the playoffs, win those then it will be an incredible loan spell for him. Worry about where he goes next after that.
