It seems anything Arsenal at the moment turns into gold. Another Arsenal youngster is having fun in the French Ligue 1.
English-born Nigerian Folarin Balogun is in superb form after scoring for the third successive game for his French club Stade de Reims.
Balogun overcame VAR frustration to rescue a point for Reims following a 1-1 draw at Strasbourg on Sunday afternoon.
After two consecutive defeats, Reims picked up the first point in the new Ligue 1 season on the road all thanks to its Nigerian forward.
The 21-year-old forward featured for 90 minutes and put up an impressive display for his modest club in the entertaining encounter.

In the second half, the host continued to dominate proceedings but the second goal proved elusive.
With eight minutes left on the clock, Balogun snatched a point for Reims with the equaliser.
On the balance of play, a share of the spoils is a fair result in the end.
Balogun is the latest Arsenal lad in Ligue 1 after William Saliba. He will be looking to follow in the foot steps of new hero at the Emirates Stadium.
Saliba had a successful loan spell at Marseille and has been in superb form for the Gunners since his return to the club.
