While Arsenal is experiencing a sporty 2019-2020 fiscal year, their summer 2020 period should suffer. To make matters worse, The Athletic ensures that the Gunners are about to lose one of their greatest hopes among young people in the person of Folarin Balogun (18), whose contract expires in June 2021 on the side of the Emirates Stadium. The Anglo-American center-forward, who scored 10 goals and delivered 4 assists with Arsenal’s reserve in 15 Premier League 2 games, has in fact failed to find common ground with the board Londoner to extend his lease.
Given the lack of the lack of opportunities offered to him with the professional group (in which he only appeared once this season without coming into play, on September 24 during the large 5-0 victory against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup), he decided that his future would take shape elsewhere. Always according to The Athletic, Folarin Balogun is followed by several large European stables. The Gunners, determined not to relive a scenario similar to the files Serge Gnabry (24, Bayern), Ismaël Bennacer (22, AC Milan) or Jeff Reine-Adélaïde (22, OL) in recent years, wish to recover a check of a certain amount to let slip their young attacker and do not want to see him leave freely in 2021. Arsenal already rejected, last January, an offer of approximately 5.5 M € from Brentford for Balogun, pure product of its training center.
