Arsenal fans react as club reportedly set to sell teenager

Arsenal are reportedly set to offload teenager striker Folarin Balogun this summer after talks between the north London club and the player’s representatives hit the skids – and Gunners fans have reacted on Twitter.

Balogun, 19, is showing enormous potential with the Gunners’ Under-23 side – having scored 10 goals in 15 Premier League 2 appearances. But he is due to enter the final 12 months of his contract on Tuesday.

Goal have claimed that Arsenal have been trying to extend Balogun’s contract and have offered the New York-born striker a performance-related contract. The player’s agents were not impressed, though, and have rejected a deal.

Indeed, Arsenal will now look to sell the England Under-18 international in the upcoming transfer window – after rejecting a £5million bid from Championship side Brentford back in the January transfer window.

Arsenal are happy to sanction the sale of Balogun. That is because Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli are shining in the first team, with big things expected from Tyreece John-Jules. Balogun looks set to leave, then.

Arsenal fans have reacted to the reported news that The Gunners are set to offload Balogun in the coming summer window. Many are outraged at the decision, with some urging the club to include a buyback clause in the sale.
