Folarin Balogun might yet extend as Arsenal re-open talks with youngster
  • Folarin Balogun's contract is expiring next summer but the youngster might yet tie his future to Arsenal.
  • The Gunners have re-opened extension talks with the striker as Mikel Arteta is keen to keep him around.
  • Balogun was subject of interest from Brentford last January as the Bees tabled a £5m bid which Arsenal turned down.
  • He could have left for Sheffield United this summer, and Chris Wilder talked openly about the Blades' interest - before the signed Rhian Brewster from Liverpool.
  • Balogun made his first-team debut for Arsenal this fall vs Dundalk, coming on as a second-half substitute.
