Arsenal of England striker, Folarin Balogun remains on the high radar of a possible loan exit from Emirates Stadium before this month runs its full course, as he is still a target for a handful of clubs in the English Championship, megasportsarena.com reports.
While initial reports indicated that The Gunners might have decided to keep Balogun for the season, to make a contingency plan with him in the advent of injuries to players in the main team, but that policy approach appears to have been thrown out of the window.
This is sequel to an updated report that indicates how the North London club are now thinking of according the Nigerian-born lad additional time to develop under less strenuous conditions, which has informed the idea of letting him move on loan to a club in the lower division Championship.
A report by British tabloid, The Mirror revealed: “Balogun has scored consistently at U-23 level over the past few seasons and has looked the part throughout his reserve appearances. There was reported interest from Sheffield United earlier in the window but The Blades have now secured the signing of Rhian Brewster.
“A gradual next step in Balogun’s career would be an EFL loan, where other forwards within the Arsenal setup have had some joy over the past 12-18 months. Tyreece John-Jules and James Olayinka have both spent time in senior football with Lincoln City and Northampton Town.
“John-Jules in particular has benefitted from loan spells; he is currently with Darren Moore’s Doncaster Rovers in League One. Balogun is yet to make a senior appearance at any level, but has 12 goals in 31 Premier League 2 appearances.”
