​Arsenal decide to keep William Saliba for next season

Arsenal have decided to keep young centre-back William Saliba with the first team next season.

According to PA Sport, a source has claimed the young Frenchman will get a chance to stake his claim for a first team spot.

Saliba signed for Arsenal in 2019 and went straight back on loan to Saint-Etienne.

The 20-year-old then struggled in the first half of this season, failing to get any game time under Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.

Saliba then went on loan to Nice in France midway through the season.

He has played 18 times for Nice in Ligue 1, and was the club's player of the month in January.
