تم نشره في 2021/04/26
Folarin Balogun has committed his future to us by signing a new long-term contract with the club.
The 19-year-old striker, who signed as a scholar in July 2017 having been at the club since he was nine years old, has continued his impressive development this season, making his first-team debut and scoring his first goals at senior level.

Known as Flo among his team-mates, the academy graduate has scored twice from his six first-team appearances this season, with both goals coming in the Europa League group stage, away at Molde and Dundalk.
The New York-born striker, who has represented both the USA and England at youth level, has also continued to make an impact in our academy this season, scoring eight goals from his 18 appearances in the PL2 and EFL Trophy.

  • Next bring back JOE Willock , we badly need his commitment and strength,and not just physicality real ball element MISSING in this squad with a few honourable exceptions.

  • Congratulations and well done Balogun, 👍🏼 This bear is expecting great things from you! Believe in yourself and set HuGe goals for yourself. I am looking forward to seeing you joining the great Henry and Dennis outside the Emirates.

  • banter fc dropping down the table like flies

  • This young man is saying and doing all the right things. I'm excited to see him play!

  • Next vid: Arsenal sign new manajer

  • What you love to see 💜

  • Why can't he look for a big ambitious club

  • Now play him

  • we have one of the most promising young striker just signed a new contract. we have both our senior strikers out injured in our most important game of the season against villarreal. and guess what? this boy didnt get the chance instead we played emile smith rowe as a false 9. hopefully this decision to sign the deal doesnt come back to haunt him.

  • Poor ballogun 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

  • Finally some good news.

  • What’s the point, poor kid never gets picked

  • Nice to hear .This is a good news for Arsenal

  • Hope he doesn't suffer the fate of winning the FA Cup for the Club only to be sold.

  • Living the dream....

  • Folarin Welbeck

  • Credit for Per

  • imagine balogun martinelli smith rowe and saka as the attackers three years later

  • finally someone who is not afraid to show his ambition....big up flo.

  • They tried really hard to make him sign a new contract.


  • We need you Folarin. Right now things could be a lot better.

  • give him some starts please. PLEASE there's nothing to lose by giving him a start in the league.

  • I love everything about this video. Please make this a regular thing for the graduates’ new deals.

  • I rather have balogun over nketiah

  • Nice and great to hear that , Arsenal future striker good luck balogun

  • "Striker's union, Laca, Auba and Eddie" Martinelli: Am I a joke to you?

  • please start him tommorrow

  • I think the boy has made a mistake signing for Arsenal. Just look at Martenelli, hardly getting a game. His talent will be wasted by Arteta who is really bewildering when it comes to playing young talent. Arteta will not remain as Arsenal manager beyond next season, he will get his chance with a new manager.

  • Congratulations Folarin,..excellent spirit and great grace is yours. Brilliant news! Keep on winning and shining. God got your back young man

  • 1:14 Mans can't hold a pen 🤣

  • its blows my mind he never starts comes on 88 min

  • Hopefully another winder kid like Saka, Smith Rowe etc


  • Announce daniel ek

  • Congratulations Flo! Chuffed you signed da ting! 🎉🖋

  • Finally....he’ll probably start next game now lol

  • a traditional number 9

  • Fabregas debut at 16, this guy 3-yrs late

  • Balogun the next Saka and ESR

  • People don’t let this great news distract you from the fact that kroenke needs to go!! He probably signed weeks ago & they were waiting for the perfect opportunity to drop this news

  • Great job Arsenal. We love you !

  • Just dont let our young Guns get influenced by those seniors who are mostly instagraming or whatever in the dressing room mostly .

  • Got something about him for sure.

  • They need to play him now Laca and Auba sick we need goals

  • He has a kid?

  • Congrats hope to see you in the shirt scoring goals 👍👍👍👍


  • Dude is built like a monster. Why ain’t he playing

  • Lethal finisher and needs to be brought into the first team

  • Good for young lad.Hopefully he doesnt go thru a meltdown like Auba after a bumper deal.Let him now scale up his worth...good luck next big thing.

  • New

  • Sell Arsenal

  • Want the ESR video next

  • This club always produced quality young players but but because of that idiot owner in the past club sold of a lot of quality end products. If only they had backed wenger with 3 to 4 additional signings in late 2000s the club could of won bigger titles that era. Hopefully in future none of these players are sold of and weak areas are strengthened.

  • If the club had good owners emi martinez still would of been at the club. And probably a few positions up in league

  • Brilliant news that Balogun has committed his future to The Arsenal.
