Arsenal of England youngster, Bukayo Saka continues generating frenetic transfer interest from other clubs in the English Premier League, even after the closure of the summer window, but a brother of fellow-Nigerian-born lad, Folarin Balogun is blowing hot.
The buzz is still on about the possibility of Saka leaving Emirates Stadium in the next transfer market, as reports out of Queensland indicate keen interest from several clubs in and outside England, but The Gunners have no intention of letting him go.
Megasportsarena.com gathered that the report adds that the dark-skinned Nigerian-born winger remains in hot demand, while Here We Go podcast further disclosed that many clubs in the English Premier League have made enquiries about the 20-year-old’s situation.
European football’s transfer specialist, Fabrizio Romano, confirmed that Saka has been a subject of inquiries from top teams around Europe, where he is seen as one of the best young left-sided wingers currently in the world.
Romano, though, interject that the vibrant winger-cum-attacking midfielder is untouchable at the moment and told the HereWeGo podcast: “Some clubs are starting to approach Bukayo Saka.
“He’s one of the best players in his position for the future (and) Arsenal consider him untouchable. They are planning to build on players like Saka.”
This has emerged at a point an older brother of Arsenal rising star, Folarin Balogun accused The Gunners’ coach, Mikel Arteta of not giving his sibling enough attention in the main squad.
The accusation comes after the 20-year-old Balogun started The Gunners’ opening day defeat of the season at Brentford and then got off the bench in their home loss to Chelsea, following which he has not appeared since.
Balogun’s brother, Royce, has now taken to social media to air his verdict on the issue, as he believes Arteta’s system does not really work and he further told @whatthefootie: “You can’t blame just the player, it’s the system.
“If you look at that striker problem in terms of chances created, it’s not just Folarin. When Martinelli and Aubameyang were playing there, the system didn’t work.
“The system just doesn’t really work at the moment. Soon it will work and he’ll have to be ready when it does. You have to support him and tell him to keep going.”
