Arsenal, which is in first place in the Premier League, is enjoying another pleasure from the loan student’s performance in addition to this season’s performance. The reason is because of Polarin Balogun (22), who left on loan to Stade de Reims 토토사이트 of Ligue 1 in France ahead of this season.
Balogun is a striker born in 2001 and has triple citizenship from England, the United States and Nigeria. He grew up in the United States as a child and has lived in London since joining the Arsenal youth team in 2008. His potential was recognized from a young age and he emerged as a striker in the team’s spotlight.
Afterwards, he made his professional debut in the 2020-2021 season, and last season, he went on loan to Middlesbrough through the winter transfer window to gain experience. At the time, he had 3 goals and 3 assists in 18 games. Then, ahead of this season, he went on loan to Reims, which became his best choice.
Upon joining, Balogun emerged as the team’s main striker. He started scoring from the 1st round and showed growth by performing well in every game. He is the team’s all-time leading scorer with 15 goals and 2 assists in 21 official matches so far.
Moreover, in the last match against Lorient, he achieved a hat-trick, surpassing Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbafe (13 goals) and taking first place in the league with 14 goals.
As a result, Arsenal even considered the recall of Balogun in January. During the World Cup, key striker Gabriel Jejus (26) was injured and needed a replacement. In the transfer market, we tried to reinforce additional attacks, but in case of failure, we even considered joining the Balo army. However, Eddie Nketia (24), who was a backup, continued to perform well and eased his worries.
Nevertheless, Balogun’s performance is a great help to Arsenal. You can reinforce your team power by returning next season, and if other clubs want to recruit you, you can leave a certain amount of profit.
