Arsenal plan for William Saliba stay & want him to sign new contract

Arsenal fully intend on having William Saliba as part of their first-team squad next season and will offer him a new deal, 90min understands.

Saliba is set to return to north London this summer aiming to become a big part of Mikel Arteta’s plans. However, the 21-year-old is anxious that the right opportunities await him at the Emirates Stadium.

The centre-back is yet to play for the Gunners despite joining them in 2019 from Saint-Etienne in a deal worth £27m.

He has never played a Premier League game for the club, instead spending the majority of his time back in France on loan with Saint-Etienne, Nice and Marseille.

Saliba excelled with Marseille last season, being voted Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year and also finding himself part of Didier Deschamps’ French squad, and he has already won five caps at senior level.
