Arsenal football club and manager Mikel Arteta have been relying on the club's academy for quality players who have never failed to impress.
Several quality players like Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nkeita got a promotion from the academy to the Arsenal senior club where they have been impressing.
Other than the three, there is one starlet who cannot be overlooked. Youngster Folarin Balogun has been all over the news with the impressive performances and top quality he is showing on the pitch.
The contract of Folarin Balogun was going to expire in the summer of 2021, which made several top clubs offer him a way out of the club as he seemed unsettled with the lack of game time in the senior squad.
However, according to Transfer News live reports and Arsenal news, Folarin Balogun has agreed a new long term contract with the Gunners after intervention from Edu and Mikel Arteta.
The reports claim that Folarin Balogun will be contracted to the club until the summer of 2025. This is a major positive development from the club as they were about to loss a highly rated player.
Was this the right decision?
