Balogun breaks silence on his Arsenal destiny amid Inter Milan connections

Folarin Balogun has broken his silence following numerous reports linking him to a possible transfer away from Arsenal during the current transfer window. The youthful striker’s impressive loan stint at Reims last season has piqued the interest of several clubs, who are now vying for his services. Arsenal is reportedly willing to sell him for the appropriate price.

Currently participating in preseason with Mikel Arteta’s squad, Balogun’s future is uncertain as the coaching staff evaluates his readiness for a spot on the first team. Inter Milan has expressed interest in procuring his signature during this transfer window, which lends credence to the notion that he will leave Arsenal.

In response to rumors regarding his future, Balogun has stated that his agents are in charge of discussions and negotiations regarding a possible transfer. This statement suggests that the player has delegated decision-making authority to his agents, enabling him to concentrate on his preparations and development as a young talent in the world of football.

The purpose of my departure was to demonstrate that I can play first-team football.

‘Obviously, I had a successful season, and I felt I was able to do that and play at that level, so coming back, I don’t feel like I need to prove anything. 

It is a decision made by those in a superior position than I. 

“I’m confident they’ll reach a conclusion, and regardless of the outcome, I’m fine with it.”

Balogun continued, ‘I’m obviously only concerned with preseason with the team.

My agent and my family are handling this, and I’m just concentrating on the task at hand.

Only Arsenal Viewpoint

It is a crucial summer for Balogun and Arsenal, and we must make a decision on his future as soon as possible so that we have an opportunity to replace the striker.

However, we can also decide to retain him and give him opportunities to prove himself in the first half of the upcoming season, despite the fact that his playing time may be limited.
