Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has expressed his happiness for youngster, Folarin Balogun.
The England U-21 star is impressing on loan at French club Reims where he settled on loan in August.
Balogun has registered five goals and two assists in just six games and hopes to use his time on loan to impress Mikel Arteta and break into the Arsenal first team.
The 21-year-old’s performances have already caught the attention of legendary Henry who told Amazon Prime Video Sport France:
“I’m really happy for him because in general English players don’t go abroad.
“Normally players are loaned either to another Premier League side or in the Championship.
“He’s now starting to score goals regularly and I’m happy for that – happy he has gone abroad.”
Despite their defeat to Manchester United last weekend, the Gunners remain top of the Premier League, having won five of their six league games.
But Mikel Arteta’s side could not extend their lead in the table this weekend as all matches were suspended following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
