Saliba has become a mainstay for his club, playing every Premier League game last term.

Mbappe told Ouest-France: "This season, he has become a very important player for Arsenal and is among the best centre-backs in the Premier League.

"He is starting to get minutes with us. It’s now up to him to find his place. 

“For me, he has all the qualities to, in time, be a starter with Les Bleus. I look at his journey with the pride of an older brother."
