Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun, shuns Nigeria, England, thinking about committing to USA

Arsenal striker, Folarin Balogun, is weighing up committing his international future to the USA.

According to Football.London, the 20-year-old has most-recently appeared for England-under-21’s, but he has also represented the USA at under-18’s level.

He is set to follow in the footsteps of former Arsenal star Yunus Musah – who also switched allegiance to the USA.

Balogun is also eligible to represent Nigeria.

He was born in New York City before moving to England when he was two-years-old.

At the age of eight he was scouted and signed for Arsenal’s academy after previously trialling for the club’s North London rivals – Tottenham.

He signed his first professional contract at the beginning of 2019 and made his Premier League debut in Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Brentford on the opening day of the season.

Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah have been the Gunners’ first-choice attacking options this year, leaving little room for Balogun – who was loaned out to Middlesbrough in January.
