Folarin Balogun has joined Middlesbrough on loan for the rest of the season, the club have officially confirmed.
The future of the 20-year-old striker was quite uncertain for a large part of 2020-21, but towards the end of the season he signed a new contract. Balogun could well be given a proper chance in the first-team squad next term, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah set to depart and the fate of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang yet to be decided.
Balogun has truly impressed for the Under-23 side this season, scoring 15 goals in 14 appearances across the Premier League 2 and the EFL Trophy. .......Read more here.....

According to a recent report by Chris Wheatley of football.london, Folarin Balogun has attracted a lot of interest with potential suitors keen on taking the 20-year-old forward on loan for the second half of the season.
Balogun started the opening Premier League match of the season for Arsenal, which ended in a shocking 2-0 defeat at the hands of newly promoted Brentford. He spent 11 minutes of the defeat to Chelsea on the pitch the following week and hasn’t featured in the league since, though he was given another seven minutes in the 3-0 Carabao Cup win over AFC Wimbledon. .......Read more here.....

According to the BBC, Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is set to join London rivals Fulham on a season-long loan deal. The report suggests that the player just needs to agree on personal terms with Cottagers before completing the move.
The 23-year-old has only recently signed a contract extension in north London. However, it seems that he is moving to Craven Cottage for more regular first team football this season.
Pushed down the pecking order by new arrivals
The summer arrivals of Swiss international defender Stephan Lichtsteiner and Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos has seen Chambers fall down the pecking order at the north London. .......Read more here.....

It’s always fun to take a look back on years gone by, especially when it comes to Arsenal. While the last few years have been questionable, the Gunners are largely considered to be one of the most successful English clubs of the modern era. As such, they’ve been involved in some fascinating matches, with this clash against Middlesbrough from twelve months ago being one of them. .......Read more here.....

According to the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal have rejected a bid of around £16million from Premier League rivals Crystal Palace for young defender Calum Chambers. However, the reports also suggest that the Gunners are willing to sell the highly rated young defender, but are looking for a fee of closer to £20million.
Chambers has Potential
I have to say I do rate Chambers and it is hard to doubt his talent. However, he maybe needs to play more first-team football before he is ready to play first-team football at Arsenal. .......Read more here.....

Last season young Arsenal defender Calum Chambers found himself loaned out to Middlesbrough, who were eventually relegated from the Premier League.
The young defender was one of Boro’s most consistent players though and the north east side’s defensive record was not the problem. They went down because they were toothless in attack. Chambers and Ben Gibson formed a very good centre-back pair.
Chambers made 24 appearances for Boro, despite being injured for some of the campaign. His performances suggest that the 22-year-old is now ready to play regular first team football in the top-flight. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on Monday night, with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil enough to seal the victory. It was by no means a pretty one, but as midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stated after the game they just needed a win.
Arsenal were not at their best and there was a slight nervousness about the Gunners, which is understandable because of their recent away form (four straight defeats).
However, in the end, the Gunners managed to grind out a win, in a fashion that they have struggled to do in the past. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal ended a run of four straight away defeats in the Premier League by winning 2-1 at Middlesbrough on Monday, courtesy of goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
Middlesbrough had the first attempt on goal on four minutes, as Grant Leadbitter fired a long-range effort just wide of Petr Cech’s far post. Boro’s Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo was the next one to have a go at goal, firing well wide of Cech’s goal from long-range. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal travel to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Monday evening, desperate for a win to boost their fledgling hopes of a top-four finish. With four consecutive defeats on the road, Arsenal come into their clash with Boro in poor form and don’t have the best record against the North-East outfit in recent head-to-heads.

On Monday night Arsenal will aim to revive their hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top four when the Gunners visit Middlesbrough.
The home side are fighting a battle of their own at the bottom of the Premier League table. Steve Agnew’s side are currently 19th in the top-flight and six points away from safety.
However, the north east side still have hope as they have two games in hand on 17th place Hull City and a far superior goal difference. That hope may be slightly negated by the fact that their form has been terrible in recent months. .......Read more here.....
