William Saliba speaks out on Marseille stay ahead of Arsenal talks

by rks2008

William Saliba believes there is ‘a chance’ that Arsenal will allow him to extend his stay at Marseille for at least another season.

The 21-year-old has not made a first-team appearance for Arsenalsince his £27 million transfer from Saint-Etienne in July 2019.

After being unable to impress Mikel Arteta in pre-season training last summer, Saliba joined Marseille on loan and the defender has impressed in Ligue 1 this season.

Saliba’s performances also earned him a place in France’s squad in the last international break and the defender is aiming for a place in Didier Deschamps’ squad for their World Cup campaign in Qatar later this year.

Arsenal have yet to make a decision over Saliba’s future and are set for talks with the defender about his future this summer.

And Saliba is refusing to rule out the idea of remaining in Ligue 1 for another campaign.

‘There is always a chance,’ Saliba said in an interview with Le Parisien.

‘I do not hide that I am very happy in Marseille.

‘I have developed, I have passed a milestone. If I make it into France’s squad it’s thanks to Marseille, because there is a lot of visibility.

‘They are a very big club with a lot of pressure, but when you’re good there are a lot of good things that happen to you.

‘We will see in May or June depending on the discussions. Today, my future, I don’t know what it is.’
