Arsenal News LIVE: Balgoun TWIST, Rice URGENT to leave, Saka’s striker for England – latest updates

Good morning Arsenal fans

Folarin Balogun has fueled speculation he could leave Arsenal by revealing he would be ready to return to Stade Reims.

The striker was a hit on loan for the Ligue Un club with 17 goals in 27 league games.

His form could encourage Mikel Arteta to use the youngster in the first-team next season.

But Balogun isn’t closing the door on a potential exit and would be open to a Reims return.

When asked about his future in an interview with Ligue Un, he said: “Contractually I have to go back because the loan was only for a year so that was always the agreement.

“I’m not sure what’s going to happen in the future.

“A lot could happen in football, a lot could change and it just depends on the talks we have between me and the club over the summer and we’ll see what happens.

“I mean, there is no door that is closed. Of course I’ve had a good year here and it makes sense for a lot of people that I come back here. So yeah, I mean I don’t know what the future will bring.”

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta engages his players in games like dodgeball to get his side tuned in before a game.

Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has revealed what it’s like working for the Spaniard.

Speaking about Arteta’s management style, Ramsdale told Standard Sport: “He’s intense, really intense.

“He loves football, loves Arsenal, loves developing young players, which is amazing.

“He comes on these things to try and make us work. We play games in the hotel.

“Sometimes it can be dodgeball, sometimes it can be spotting the difference on TV to get our brains working…

“It’s just his way of getting us to tune in before the game, before the warm-up and to make sure we live and breathe football when we’re resting.”

England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed what Bukayo Saka improved in his game.

Speaking to Channel 4 about the Arsenal star’s goal, he said: “It’s a top-level finish [from Saka].

“That’s the reckless part that he’s added to his game over the past 18 months or so. There were times when you weren’t sure if he was going to finish, but now he has that confidence in front of goal.”

Danny Murphy has urged Declan Rice to leave West Ham – with Arsenal leading the race to sign him in the summer.

“Declan Rice has to leave West Ham,” former Premier League midfielder Murphy told the Daily Mail.

“Ideally he would have left last summer because it was difficult for him to keep his best form in a team that doesn’t stay on the ball as well or play boss games as others.

“He’s 100 per cent ready to get to the next level and at 24 he doesn’t want to wait any longer for Champions League football.

“Arsenal would be a great option and I think he would be an automatic starter. Chelsea’s appeal is also strong as they grew up with the club’s support and played in their academy.”

Arsenal and Man Utd target Rasmus Hojlund is reportedly set to appoint a new agent.

The Denmark forward has become a hot property after scoring five goals in two starts for the national team.

While he tore up Serie A with Atalanta, scoring eight goals in 25 games.

The 6ft 4in forward, 20, has been compared to Man City ace Erling Haaland.

Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Understand that Rasmus Højlund will appoint a new agent very soon as he is followed by the top European clubs.

“Højlund has five goals in two starts for the Danish national team – sounds great after an excellent first season in Serie A with Atalanta.”
