Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Édouard Mendy’s “Little Brother” interview!
This is very bad news looming for OM. After the words of Mikel Arteta who announced that he was counting on William Saliba next season, the trend is confirmed this evening according to information from L’Equipe. Satisfied with his season, Arsenal would see the French international as a credible reinforcement for next season.
Arsenal are counting on Saliba!
A blow for Pablo Longoria, who will therefore have to look for two central defenders. In addition, the amount that the Gunners could potentially ask for in the event of a sale would be far too demanding for Olympian finances. This does not seem to be the scenario knowing that the Londoners would have assured the native of Bondy that he would be an integral part of the project next year and that they will even send him an offer of extension soon.
The main interested party, for his part, obviously has the World Cup in the back of his mind and wants to play regularly, which OM offered him, who wanted a new loan. If he was not closed to the idea of returning, he would however never have assured that he wanted to stay at all costs. While he enjoys the full confidence of Mikel Arteta and his managers, Saliba will nevertheless have to come up against competition from Ben White and Gabriel at Arsenal. However, he will not go against the will of the Gunners, who are now counting on him.
While OM wanted to take advantage of the services of William Saliba again next season, Arsenal would have vetoed it. Indeed, the Gunners are counting more than ever on the French international next year.
