Another week, another game and another goal for Folarin Balogun as State De Reims beat Troyes 4-0 earlier today. The young striker on loan from Arsenal is absolutely smashing it in France this season.
Balogun’s goal today takes his tally to 15 goals & 2 assists in 22 games so far this season.

With Folarin Balogun scoring his 15th goal of the season today he joins fine company in the goalscoring charts this season.
The 21-year-old is now the top goalscorer in Ligue 1 this season, while also becoming just the fourth player in Europe’s top five leagues to reach the 15 goal mark in the campaign.
He joins the list of players to score 15+ goals this season alongside Erling Haaland, Harry Kane & Victor Osimhen.
A list of world class strikers – if you didn’t realise how good Balogun was doing this season, then just take that one stat and you’ll realise. He’s on fire & he doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon.
Only four players have scored 15+ goals in Europe’s top five leagues so far this season:
◎ Erling Haaland
◎ Harry Kane
◎ Victor Osimhen

His bundle of goals have helped launch Reims into the top 10 in Ligue 1 despite being one of the sides with the lowest budgets in the division.
Arsenal have a real talent on their hands if they choose to give him a chance once he returns from his loan spell next season.
