Folarin Balogun

Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun is keeping his options open in terms of international football.

England U-21 international Balogun is currently on-loan in France with Reims.

The New York City-born striker, who is eligible for the United States of America and Nigeria through family roots, told L’Equipe that he is willing to consider all three countries for his international career.

“Just like my future at club level, I am not closing any doors regarding international selection,” Balogun said.

“All options remain open. Above everything, I feel English, but I also have an American side, because I have family in New York and I love going there.

” I have my grandmother and cousins in Lagos, even if I haven’t been there since I was very young.

“My mother sometimes speaks to me in Yoruba and it is important to me,” he added.
