Epl transfer update: £27m star to stay in Arsenal

Arsenal star William Saliba is “staying” at the Emirates Stadium because of his potential to grow under manager Mikel Arteta, reports journalist Robin Weiner.

The centre-back returned to north London in the summer after a loan spell at Ligue 1 giants Marseille last season and made a major impact. According to The Athletic, Arsenal have held official talks with Saliba over a new contract.

A deal is yet to be agreed, reports say, but negotiations will continue as the Gunners hope to tie down the seven French nationals on new terms after sparking widespread interest. The highlight comes after Saliba revealed early talks over a new deal were underway following last month’s north London derby victory over Tottenham.

Arsenal would like to sign the 21-year-old defender ahead of the January transfer window, who is entering the final 18 months of their current £40,000-a-week deal at the start of the season. year. However, the Capital Club have the option to extend his contract by another year, allowing Saliba to remain with the team until the summer of 2025.

Arsenal have had a successful start to the season and are currently number one in the Premier League, but this would not have been possible without Saliba. He has had one of his best starts since the start of the campaign, even scoring against Bournemouth and Brentford, underscoring his threat in the opposition half.


Arsenal’s managers thoughts on Saliba

Byrner believes Saliba will commit his future to Arsenal, who will not hesitate to sign a new contract and move to new pastures. The French football journalist believes the centre-back is confident he will take his game to the next level playing for the Gunners.

Beirner told GIVEMESPORT: “I think he will stay at Arsenal. There is no other information to provide.

“He’s done well there and I think he’ll see himself grow there over the next three or four years.”

Saliba is Arsenal’s new priority?

This is a surprising turnaround as Saliba enters the 2022/23 season and is still targeting an Arsenal debut despite a £27million move from Saint-Etienne three years ago. The defender’s form has been so impressive that he will travel to the World Cup to represent France in the coming weeks, so the Gunners will need to agree new terms before allowing other clubs to take notice. .
