‘We Should Not Let Him Go’ ‘He’s Better Than Nketiah’ Fans Frustrated By Reports That Arsenal Ace Could Leave

Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun is unlikely to sign a new contract at the club, according to multiple reports in the English media.

At a press conference yesterday, manager Mikel Arteta said that the 19-year-old was keen to stay at the Emirates but he accused his agent of dragging his heels about putting pen to paper on a new deal.

However, after Arteta made his comments, it was reported that Balogun was close to signing a pre-contract agreement with an unnamed foreign club. Fans are not happy with how the Gunners have handled the situation:


There is still a chance that this is simply brinkmanship on behalf of the teenager’s agent. It is believed that in past talks involving other players, he has delayed agreement until the last moment in order to get the best deal.

Even so, this does sound like more than just tough negotiating tactics, with multiple teams, including Liverpool, believed to be keen on signing Balogun.
