“I’m open to playing for Nigeria” – Folarin Balogun

Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun has revealed that he is open to playing for Nigeria and has refused to rule out switching international allegiances.

The Arsenal loanee has represented England at four different youth levels and has also netted seven times in 13 games for England’s Under-21s.

With seven goals, the New York-born starlet is tied for fifth place in Ligue 1, one ahead of Lionel Messi and one behind former Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette.


Balogun told BBC Sport Africa that he’s got love for Nigeria and open to anything because Nigeria is very close to his heart. He however noted that he is yet to hear anything from the West African country.

He said;

“I haven’t heard anything from Nigeria, but I’m open to anything because Nigeria is very close to my heart.

“My family’s from there. I always have love for Nigeria. That’s a conversation that I need to have with people around me, my agent, and obviously my family.

“But if I was asked about the opportunity to play for Nigeria, then I can have that conversation. But first I need to be asked.”
