Fresh update on William Saliba’s Arsenal future provided ahead of summer window

An update on the future of Arsenal defender William Saliba has been provided recently.

Arsenal of course secured Saliba’s services in the summer of 2019. The Gunners are believed to have forked over around £27m for the centre-back.

Despite the hefty fee, however, Arsenal are yet to hand Saliba a senior appearance.

Instead, the centre-back has now been loaned out to three separate clubs, the latest of which came in the form of Marseille.

For Marseille, Saliba has been a superb asset this term, they currently have the one of the best defensive records in Ligue 1, letting in just 25 in 27.

And Saliba is a big reason why, featuring in 26 of their league outings so far this season.

Amid this fine form, it was reported recently that Saliba was attracting interest from Spanish powerhouse, Real Madrid.

Now, as mentioned above, a fresh update on Saliba’s future has been provided.

According to football.london, Arsenal will review William Saliba’s situation at the end of the season with preliminary talks over a new contract expected to take place.

This seems to suggest that, despite Saliba not playing a competitive game for Arsenal, the club still see a future for him in north London. Saliba’s current deal expires in 2024.

Will Saliba get regular game time at Arsenal?

One of the sticking points for Saliba signing a new deal at Arsenal is likely to be playing time.

The Frenchman is now a key figure for Marseille and is unlikely to be happy being reduced to a fringe role next campaign.

However, with Arsenal looking very likely to secure some form of European football in 2022/23, there should be plenty of minutes to go round.
