‘Gassed To See This!’ ‘Will Definitely Feel Like A New Signing’ Fans Delighted As Chris Wheatley Provides Update On Arsenal Star’s Future

Arsenal expect William Saliba to remain at the Emirates next season, after “positive talks” were held over a contract extension, according to Chris Wheatley.

The trusted journalist claims that sources close to the player AND the club have told him that the France international won’t be leaving the Gunners:

Reports in France have suggested that Marseille may table a formal bid in the region of €30m (£26m) for Saliba but this latest update has made fans on Twitter feel confident that the defender will remain in London:

Manager Mikel Arteta has previously spoken out to say that he wants Saliba around for preseason but it has to be said that there will be fierce competition for the two centre-half positions.

Not only will Saliba have to compete with Ben White, Rob Holding and Gabriel, but Arsenal are also pursuing Ajax’s Lisandro Martinez, so it remains to be seen where the Frenchman will fit in the pecking order.
