Arsenal approach St Etienne about cutting short Saliba loan

Arsenal have approached St Etienne about cutting short William Saliba's loan in January.

Having signed Saliba last summer, Arsenal agreed to send the defender back to ASSE on a season-long loan.

However, with their season in crisis, RMC says Arsenal have sounded out ASSE about Saliba ending his spell and joining them in January.

But ASSE have given the attempt short shrift, insisting all parties keep to the original deal.

Arsenal are desperate to boost their defensive options - and would prefer to recall Saliba rather than buy a new centre-half.
