Mikel Arteta gives hope on the future of gifted striker Folarin Balogun and leaves Many Arsenal fans smiling



Mikel Arteta remains confident that Arsenal can tie Folarin Balogun to a new contract

Balogun is rated as one of the most highly-rated talents at Arsenal and they have big hopes that he can go on to become a regular starter at the club, but there has been alot of interest about his future over the past few months

The highly-rated 19-year-old will be in a position to walk away from Emirates Stadium at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, and The Gunners have been doing all they can to get fresh terms thrashed out, with Arteta claiming to have received plenty of encouragement from the American-born youngster regarding those talks.

“I’m still very positive that Flo is going to stay with us and it’s what we’re trying to do as a club, and it’s what I’m trying to do as a manager,” Arteta told reporters when quizzed on Balogun ahead of a Premier League clash with Leeds on Sunday.

“As far as I know from last week, the player wants to be here, so I’m positive. I think he’s made some big progress in a few months.”

There is no doubt that Balogun is a player that the Arsenal board do not want to lose in the next couple of windows, but they will not be held to ransom, so if he does not want to sign a new contract at the Emirates, then let him leave.
