Balogun to be loaned out?
Football Transfer Centre

Arsenal are prepared to loan out Folarin Balogun when the transfer window reopens next month.

The Gunners graduate signed a new long-term deal earlier this year after turning down interest from 15 clubs.

He made his full Premier League debut against Brentford back in August, but has since played just 11 more minutes.

This has led to speculation over his future, and The Athletic claims that he could be loaned out at the turn of the year.

Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette are about to enter the final six months of their contracts. The former could leave in January.

Despite this, the board are prepared to loan out Balogun with interest from high-profile teams including Bayer Leverkusen.

Balogun remains in the long-term plans of Mikel Arteta, and he could get a regular role with the first-team squad next season.

The Gunners are scheduled to face Everton on the road tonight. Balogun is highly unlikely to make the matchday squad.
