Pepe and Balogun give updates on Arsenal future

Folarin Balogun and Nicolas Pepe have suggested they are still Arsenal players with their latest social media posts.

While Pepe is in the final year of his contract, Balogun’s deal will expire in 2025. However, both strikers could leave the Emirates.

Posting on his Instagram story, Balogun showed an empty gym. Without any intervention, the image simply had a thumbs-up emoji in the middle.

Meanwhile, Pepe confirmed his return to training at Arsenal with a dressing room image shared on his Instagram story.

The pair spent last season on loan at Reims and Nice respectively. Balogun had a solid season in France.

The striker scored 21 goals in 37 Ligue 1 appearances, with only Jonathan David (24), Alexandre Lacazette (27) and Golden Boot winner Kylian Mbappe (29) ahead of him.
