Arsenal to discuss new William Saliba contract in summer


Arsenal are expected to enter contract talks with defender William Saliba at the end of the season.

Saliba joined the Gunners in 2019, but has not yet made his competitive debut for the club, spending time on loan at Saint-Etienne, Nice and most currently Marseille.

The centre-back has been a key part of Jorge Sampaoli’s side at Stade Velodrome this term, making 38 appearances in all competitions so far. As per, Marseille are keen to sign Saliba permanently but the player would prefer to remain in the Premier League.

The 20-year-old’s Arsenal contract is set to expire in 2024 and it is said that the club will enter talks over fresh terms when he returns from his latest loan spell at the end of the season.

Although Saliba is unlikely to displace starting centre-back pairing Ben White and Gabriel, he could be useful as right-back cover. Hector Bellerin, currently on loan at Real Betis, is expected to leave in summer, but that still leaves Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares ahead in the pecking order.
