Arsenal fans have been reacting on Twitter to the news that Folarin Balogun is in negotiations over a new contract, as confirmed by Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners boss confirmed yesterday that the club were looking to give Balogun a new deal with the club. The decision marks something of a u-turn for Arsenal, who were almost resigned to losing the teenager in the summer.
Balogun could be given another chance tonight when Arsenal take on Molde in the Europa League. The youngster is looking to kick on and make an impression, with the door open thanks to Alexandre Lacazette’s struggles so far.
Arsenal fans, then, were loving the news on social media with many of them hopeful of big things for Balogun in the future.
With that, here’s how some Arsenal supporters reacted to the update on Folarin Balogun’s contract situation.
I’m looking forward believing that Balogun becomes the next Drogba for us.

I’d rather take a punt on Balogun than keep Willian.
No question in my mind.

Balogun must play, Lacazette is just doing a defensive job and Nketiah out of form

The boy is golden. Must keep at all costs. He’s already better than Eddie

Give him more game time over Nketiah then, all good him doing well for England under 21’s but for Arsenal he’s just bang average, Balogun would probably do better than Lacazette too with his current form

Our future is bright, the talent coming through is ridiculous
