Forward Folarin Balogun has signed a deal at Arsenal to end speculation about his future.
The 19-year-old signed a new four-year contract and will remain at the Emirates until 2025.
Balogun’s initial contract will expire in July and has been heavily linked with a move away in recent weeks, but Arsenal have now secured his future.
The Gunners confirmed the news in a statement on Monday afternoon:
The statement read: “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.
“Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Flo on his new contract and we look forward to his continued development.”
Born in the United States, Balogun has represented both the USA and England at the youth level, but he’s still eligible to play for Nigeria.
