Arsenal want to reintegrate William Saliba

Arsenal want to bring defender William Saliba back to the club when his loan deal with Marseille ends in summer. The 20-year-old has spent the entirety of his Arsenal career to date on loan to Ligue 1 sides.

Despite heading out on his third loan-spell, Saliba has massively impressed in his time at Marseille this season. French outlet L’Equipe report that despite Marseille’s intentions of making the move permanent, The Gunners want him back.

Arsenal are happy for the defender to fulfill his loan, but for the moment will insist he returns to North London next season.

Football London report that Saliba’s versatility while on loan at Marseille, could see him cover at right-back if needed. This in turn would allow Arsenal to sell fringe players like Callum Chambers, Cedric Soares and Hector Bellerin.
