Arsenal look set to lose promising youngster Folarin Balogun after the teenager rejected a new club to stay at the Emirates.

The 18-year-old is considered one of the brightest prospects in Arsenal’s academy but he’s yet to make his breakthrough into the first team.

Arsenal rejected a £5m bid from Brentford for the forward in January and the club instead offered Balogun a long-term contract to stay at the Gunners.

However, Balogun has decided to leave after seeing his pathway blocked by the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Ironically, though the Gabon international could be part of the reason that Balogun looks set to leave, Aubameyang is also one of teenager’s biggest fans at the club.

After news of Balogun’s decision spread this week, Aubameyang’s comments about the forward resurfaced in which he was full of praise for his fellow striker.

Commenting on a post from Arsenal’s academy, Aubameyang made it clear how much he rated the youngster.

‘This young boy is ??,’ wrote Aubameyang.

After losing the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere on free transfers in recent years Arsenal look set to cash in on Balogun this summer.

The forward is likely to attract attention from bottom-half Premier League clubs, while Brentofrd remain interested.
