Folarin Balogun Cherishes First Pro-contract At Arsenal

Arsenal of England youngster, Folarin Balogun has admitted he is excited to sign his first professional contract, which he says he cherishes a lot.

Balogun was all smiles, as he put pen to paper on the dotted lines in London, and stated afterwards that it is a dream come true for him.

The 17-year-old Balogun has been with Arsenal’s academy since age ten and has played for The Gunners are various grades, before finally heralding his arrival on the big time this season.

Balogun has already scored 13 goals in 13 games for Arsenal’s under-18 squad, while helping them up to second on the Youth League table.

However, he is not seriously thinking about a future playing international football for Nigeria, as he is already in England’s youth squad and is also eligible for United States of America.

Though he has played for USA and England at under-18 grade, he could be urged to make the switch if pressure comes from Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) early enough.
