Folarin Balogun makes claim Arsenal fans will love following loan move away

Balogun joins Middlesborough on loan

Highly-rated Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun has moved to Middlesbrough on loan for the remainder of the season, both clubs confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.

Balogun, who fell behind Eddie Nketiah in the pecking order this season, will be getting his first serious taste of first-team football, and will be hoping to leave his mark with the north east club, lifting them into the top-flight in the process.

Far too good for U23 football, it is hoped that the loan move will see him come back a player ready to fight it out with whichever new striker Arsenal sign for a first-team spot next season.

Balogun makes Arsenal claim

And, for those worried that perhaps they may lose the starlet altogether, Balogun has now confirmed his intentions beyond his loan spell.

The Arsenal man revealed:

“The goal is definitely still to make it Arsenal. Coming through the ranks and making it to the first team was something I was always wanting to do.”

For a club that prides itself on its Hale End graduates, Arsenal will be hoping that he can follow in the footsteps of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, who have done just that.
