Arsenal reach an agreement with French defender

17 Jun 2019, 10:00

English Premier League side Arenal has reportedly reached an agreement with Saint-Etienne and France defender William Saliba.

The Gunners are eager to bolster their defensive options this summer and 18-year-old center-back Saliba, who enjoyed an outstanding season with Saint-Etienne, has been heavily linked with a switch to the Emirates Stadium.

As reported by Foot Mercato, Arsenal have agreed on a five-year deal for Saliba and must now strike a deal with Saint-Etienne.

France Under-19 international Saliba has been linked with several other major clubs, including Manchester City and Manchester United.

Destination

However, Arsenal appears his most likely destination and the tall defender would relish the opportunity to test himself in the Premier League.

Arsenal again struggled defensively last season, with Shkodran Mustafi error-prone and Laurent Koscielny injury prone, a new center-back is a must for Unai Emery's side.

Emery can also call upon Sokratis, Rob Holding (who is currently recovering from injury), and Konstantinos Mavropanos at the heart of the defense, but Saliba would represent an intriguing alternative option.
