- Balogun dons New York Yankees jersey
- Back in London after national team duty
- Likely to move away from Arsenal
WHAT HAPPENED? The striker who recently pledged international allegiance to the United States, is back in London from national team duty. Balogun posted a photo of himself on his Instagram account while training in a New York Yankees jersey.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 21-year-old has returned to Arsenal after a year-long loan spell at Ligue 1 side Reims where he scored 21 goals. After returning to England, he has hinted at leaving Arsenal despite being under contract with them until 2025. Several top European clubs are chasing the forward at the moment, namely, AC Milan, Inter, Juventus, Marseille, RB Leipzig and Crystal Palace.
WHAT NEXT? With Arsenal having players like Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz in their ranks now, it is unlikely that they can guarantee regular game time to Balogun and would rather prefer cashing in on the player this summer.
