In-form Nigerian born Folarin Balogun is due to hold crunch talks about his future at parent club Arsenal at the end of the 2022/23 season, 90min understands.

Balogun has been in stunning form while on loan at Reims, scoring 18 goals in Ligue 1 – just one fewer than Kylian Mbappe in the league this season.

That goalscoring feat has led to many Arsenal fans calling for the 21-year-old’s return to the Emirates Stadium in the summer to become a key player for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Sources have told 90min Balogun is due to hold talks about his future with the Gunners this summer, and he intends to make it clear to the club that if he is not guaranteed first-team opportunities, he will be keen to leave.

Another loan move, while Arsenal would be keen, has been ruled out by the striker’s representatives so a permanent move is the most likely outcome.
