Mikel Arteta hinted Folrain Balogun will only get further first team opportunities when his performances in training force his hand.
The talented teenager has been prolific at Under-23 level for the Gunners and made his senior debut in last week’s Europa League victory against Dundalk as a second half substitute.
Balogun has little over six months remaining on his current contract and had been the subject of a £3million offer from Sheffield United over the summer, while several Bundesliga clubs are said to be monitoring his situation.
The 19-year-old is desperate to force his way into Arteta’s first team plans on a regular basis but was not included in the squad for last night’s victory over Molde at the Emirates. (Metro)
