Arsenal forward, Folarin Balogun, has declared that he is open to playing for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.



Balogun was born to Nigerian parents in the United States of America.

Balogun has, however, revealed his admiration for Nigeria and his desire to play for the Super Eagles in the future.

“I haven’t heard anything from Nigeria, but I’m open to anything because Nigeria is very close to my heart,” Balogun told BBC Sport Africa.

My family’s from there. I always have love for Nigeria. "

The forward is currently on loan at Ligue 1 club 'Stade de Reims'.

Flo, as he is fondly called, has scored seven goals and recorded two assists in 12 league appearances for Reims.
