The Gunners Are Wanting To Promote William Saliba



Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners defender William Saliba is expected to leave the club during the forthcoming summer transfer window 

Arsenal Transfer News: Arsenal is reportedly looking into the potential of permanently moving defender William Saliba, according to Football Insider. The center-back has failed to make an impact on the first team. He has spent the whole of his Arsenal career on loan.

A €30 million transfer from Saint-Etienne brought the teenage center-back to the Emirates Stadium. He was promptly loaned back to the Ligue 1 side. Arsenal kept hold of him for the first half of the 2020/21 season before sending him out on another loan, this time to OGC Nice.

Having had another mediocre season in France, Saliba was on the move once again, this time to Marseille. They brought him in on a one-year loan during the summer of 2021.

The 21-year-old has established himself as a staple in the heart of the French club’s defence this season. He has appeared in 47 matches across all competitions.

Arsenal to take a decision regarding Saliba

Although Saliba is expected to return to the Premier League when his loan term with Marseille comes to an end this summer, manager Mikel Arteta has not yet decided on what role the young center-back will play for the club.

With the central defensive pairing of Ben White and Gabriel in place, the Spaniard is keen to get forward. This might harm Saliba’s playing time. He is still far from being a polished product.

Saliba’s profile is rising as a result of his performances for Marseille this season, as well as his international debut for France.

According to the aforementioned source, the Ligue 1 club is looking into the potential of acquiring the defender permanently. The Gunners might make things easier for them by signing him on a free transfer.

Saliba has a contract with Arsenal until 2024. However, it is exceedingly improbable that he will be employed by Arteta during the current season. Arsenal themselves are preparing for a busy summer transfer window.

What’s next for Saliba?

They may be forced to sell a few players to make room for new arrivals. And Saliba, who is a target for Atletico Madrid, might be one of the players who is offloaded if a substantial offer is made for his services.

Arsenal is now in the fourth position in the Premier League standings, two points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur. In a theoretical fourth-place decider on May 12 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, both teams will be looking to secure a top-4 position.

To be successful in their pursuit of a place in the Champions League, Arsenal will need sufficient depth throughout the whole team. As a result, Saliba’s future may also be determined by how they complete the season.
