William Saliba ‘wants Arsenal return despite Marseille speculation’

William Saliba ‘wants Arsenal return despite Marseille speculation’

William Saliba is reportedly planning to return to Arsenal this summer, in spite of links with a permanent switch to Marseille.

The centre-back was loaned out by Arsenal for the third time last summer and has become a key member of the Champions League-chasing Olympiens side under Jorge Sampaoli.

Saliba has made 20 starts in Ligue 1 for Marseille this season, and a recent report claimed that he could be open to a permanent move to the Orange Velodrome if Les Olympiens qualify for next season’s Champions League.

However, reports that the former Saint-Etienne man does indeed want to come back and prove himself at Arsenal after gaining bountiful top-flight and continental experience this season.

Mikel Arteta is thought to be preparing to integrate Saliba into the first team for the 2022-23 season, with Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers both widely expected to leave the club permanently this year.

Saliba’s only appearances in an Arsenal shirt so far have come for the Under-23s, and the 20-year-old remains under contract at the Emirates until the summer of 2024.
