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.
