Arteta claimed last week that Balogun was keen to sign a long-term deal with the Gunners, but he was not sure about his agent’s intentions.
"Well, you need three parties to make a deal,"
the Arsenal boss said.
"For sure the club wants to make a deal, the manager wants to make a deal, and I'm not sure about the agent.
“I'm not saying he’s stopping; it’s that we need to find an agreement with him. We are negotiating at the end with an agent, with a player that wants to stay at the club and we need to find agreement.
"I’m telling you that we are doing everything we can to keep him here. And hopefully from the other part they’re doing the same and defending the same interest which is the player’s interests which is to stay at the club and be successful with us."
