It’s said that Mikel Arteta played a key role over convincing the young forward to stay and fight for a place in the first team.
Balogun had a lot of suitors all around Europe and had 15 different proposals from different clubs to join them as a free agent in the summer.
Bayer Leverkusen made the biggest offer, but the youngster rejected all offers to stay at Arsenal.
Balogun will look to cement his place in the first-team squad after impressing for the Arsenal U23s this season, for whom he’s scored 9 goals in 17 league appearances.
