Arsenal defender Saliba willing to drop £90,000-a-week for St Etienne return

Arsenal defender William Saliba is willing to take a huge pay-cut to return to Saint-Etienne in January.

Saliba wants regular first team football and is itching to leave Arsenal on loan in the January transfer window.

His former club Saint Etienne have already been linked with his signature, but the centre-back's new wages are a real problem.

As things stand, the Ligue 1 outfit are unable to afford Saliba, but Canal Plus claims Saliba is so desperate to leave on loan he is willing to sacrifice as much as £90,000 a week to make the transfer happen.

Manager Mikel Arteta has previously hinted that Saliba could leave Arsenal on loan in January.
