Or at least that is what his latest social media post would suggest.
This week has brought about some mixed news for the Gunners youngsters. Bukayo Saka delighted fans by finally putting pen-to-paper on a new contract at the Emirates Stadium, as a reward for his progress in the first-team team this season.
However, according to the Athletic’s David Ornstein, Balogun has not agreed to an extension on his deal that expires in 2021 and therefore will be sold this summer as the club look to avoid losing him for nothing next year.
As expected, this report has garnered a big reaction from Arsenal fans on social media as many are concerned that Balogun could become the latest ‘one that got away’ for the Gunners, having seen the likes of Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Donyell Malen excel elsewhere since leaving the club.
Take a look at some of the best responses right here.
Having averaged a goal every 62 minutes in the club’s U18 title-winning season last season as well as netted 10 goals and weighing in with four assists in 15 appearances in Premier League 2 this term, there are high hopes for Balogun.
But it’s looking increasingly likely that he is to depart the north London outfit very soon.
The 18-year-old has taken to Instagram and uploaded an image of the training pitch at London Colney with a caption that reads: “A lot of goals on that pitch,” with a crying face emoji.
All signs are pointing towards that being Balogun’s farewell message.
With that said, Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta was in a relaxed mood when asked about the futures of his Arsenal youngsters earlier in the week.

“I am not worried because I know that the club is doing their best to try to keep them [Bukayo and Folarin Balogun],” Arteta said ahead of his side’s win over Norwich. “Hopefully we can have some good news about them very soon.
“They know my opinion on them and how much I like working on them, the intention that I have in the future with them.
“I see them really committed and hopefully we can find the right agreement for both parties and move on, because I think there’s a great future ahead of us with these kids.”
