Arsenal management rubbish injury doubts for William Saliba

Arsenal management have rubbished injury doubts for William Saliba.

There's been claims from The Athletic of concerns regarding the defender's 'groin strength'.

But the Metro says the club are confident he will be ready to compete for a first-team spot next season.

Saliba joined Arsenal from St Etienne in the summer and was immediately loaned back to the French club.

But Arsenal soon got a chance to have a closer look at the 18-year-old centre-back as he visited their London Colney training base after being ruled out of the first seven games of the season with a hamstring injury.

Saliba eventually made his return to action in Ligue 1, making his first three appearances of the season prior to the current international break.
