Arsenal hero Ian Wright has urged manager Mikel Arteta to give Folarin Balogun a chance next season.
The striker, on-loan at Reims, has hit 18 goals in France to become one of Ligue 1’s top scorers this season.
“Hopefully he can come back to Arsenal at some stage and prove himself,” Wright told his Wrighty’s House podcast.
“He’s gone to another level in confidence. I think anywhere he goes in aspect of leagues, he’ll do what he is doing [in France] with the right service.
“It’s the way he’s taking those chances. His head space is at a different place right now. He knows he can do it right now.
“I guarantee you if he comes back, he probably picks up from what he’s doing in that league.”
