TOP STORY: Arsenal gunning for French prospect Saliba

Arsenal look set to sign French teenager William Saliba from Saint-Etienne — and the good news doesn’t end there.

According to the Evening Standard, the Gunners look set to snare the 18-year-old imminently before loaning him back to the French club for the 2018-19 season.

Unai Emery is understood to want the player far sooner but such is the player’s burgeoning reputation that they could agree to Saint-Etienne’s demands in order to seal the deal.

As a result they wouldn’t have to eat substantially into their comparatively paltry £40m transfer budget this summer, with both clubs likely to agree a small initial fee before the player heads to London next summer.
