The 21-year-old enjoyed an excellent campaign in Ligue 1 while playing for Reims on loan. However, Balogun does not want to return to Arsenal when his official position is not guaranteed. Finally, he joined Monaco.
Balogun shared: “There are many great players that I take inspiration from. I remember when I was on loan and we played against PSG. I had the opportunity to play with Messi, Neymar, Mbappe. For myself, The player who caught the most attention when we analyzed them was Messi – and what he did in the match was undeniable.
In addition, there is also Mbappe. He’s someone I really admire, the way he goes about his job and has collected a lot of trophies at a young age.”
The former Gunner added the reason why he left the Emirates: “I felt it was important for me to go to a team that is competing, to win. Monaco is a really big team in the French league. Dong At the same time, I wanted to play and improve, proving that I have the ability to become the main striker for a team. In the end, when Monaco was interested, it was an easy decision for me.”
