Arsenal transfers: Marseille ‘hope’ to keep William Saliba at the club next season

By Jonathan Gorrie

Marseille manager Jorge Sampaoli hopes to keep Arsenal loanee William Saliba at the club this summer.

The French defender has impressed during a loan stint, starting all but one of their 36 Ligue 1 games so far, as well seven of their outings in the club’s run to the Europa Conference League semi-finals.

Saliba is yet to make a senior appearance for Arsenal despite joining the club in 2019, with manager Mikel Arteta bringing in Gabriel and Ben White in consecutive summers to form his first-choice central defensive partnership.

While Arteta has praised the 21-year-old for his development, Saliba himself admitted last month there was a “chance” he could stay with Marseille next season.

Speaking to Get French Football news, Sampaoli said: “I hope that there is a possibility for us to keep a player like him, who knows the team.

“I don’t know if it depends on the club, William or Arsenal… I don’t know the possibilities in this case.”
