Arsenal fans think they’ve found an upgrade on Eddie Nketiah

Arsenal fans think they've found an upgrade on Eddie Nketiah - Arsenal News

Some Arsenal fans think that Reims rising star Folarin Balogun should replace Eddie Nketiah in the squad for next season.

The Lowdown: Balogun on fire

Balogun is enjoying a top season at Reims, on loan from the Gunners, with his goal against AS Monaco over the weekend his 16th in Ligue 1 so far.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano gave an update on his situation at Arsenal, saying that his future will be decided at the end of the season.

The Latest: Balogun over Nketiah?

Taking to Twitter, these Arsenal fans expressed their desire to keep Balogun for the next campaign, and move on Nketiah instead, with the pair unlikely to want to be a third-choice striker with Gabriel Jesus already at the North London club:

“Sell Nketiah ASAP and keep him.”@LUIZ26407850

“Nketiah should be a little worried.” – @Wavyhair_Lemie

“How about keep him and send Nketiah packing?”@beano24789

“He’s coming back! Definitely better than Nketiah.” – @fundraiser360

“About 10 levels better than Nketiah” – @GoonerTiliDie19

“Sell Nketiah, use Folarin simple maths”@_shahidi_

The Verdict: Tough decision

It will no doubt be a tough decision for Mikel Arteta over which player to keep, given Balogun’s form but also his loyalty to Nketiah.

While Jesus has been injured, the latter has led the line well, scoring six goals and making one assist in total over all competitions since Christmas Day.

However, Balogun’s form in a major league is hard to ignore, and at just 21 years of age, he potentially has a higher ceiling than Nketiah, who turns 24 in May.
