ARTETA RETRAINING ‘UNIQUE’ ARSENAL PLAYER SO HE CAN TAKE ON NEW ROLE


According to All Nigeria Soccer, Mikel Arteta is mulling a position move for Folarin Balogun, with Arsenal's Premier League potential being retrained as a left-sided attacker.


Balogun appears to be a player who is perfectly suited to the number nine position.



The New York-born wonderkid, who is physically imposing and a penalty-box threat, has scored the majority of his 22 goals in 49 Premier League 2 appearances from a central position.

Arteta, on the other hand, clearly believes Balogun has more to contribute in a different position.

According to All Nigeria Soccer, the 20-year-old has spent more time on the wing during pre-season training.


FOLARIN BALOGUN GETS A NEW ROLE AT ARSENAL, SAYS ARTETA.


It's safe to say that Arsenal fans will be hoping Balogun can adapt to a larger role better than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did.



It was a cause of continual controversy during the first part of last season, with Aubameyang's dismal performances on the left leading to lots of rages aimed at Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.


Balogun, then, will aim to hit the ground running in his new job in order to avoid becoming embroiled in a similar argument.

After putting an end to speculation linking him with Liverpool, Bayer Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig by signing a new four-year agreement in April, the academy graduate is anticipated to play a larger role in the first-team picture next season.



“(Balogun) stands out as a striker because of his pace and the way he holds the ball. He's a great goal threat, and he works extremely hard,” Arteta recently stated.


“He's a really hungry young man. He wants to do everything and put in extra practice time every day. He'll be challenging anyone on our first squad for his spot, which is exactly what we want.


“He has the opportunity. It's now up to him to prove himself.”
