Arsenal scoff at Spurs competition for St Etienne defender William Saliba

Arsenal are refusing to cave into competition for St Etienne defender William Saliba.

RMC says Arsenal are not giving up on signing Saliba having seen Tottenham take the lead in their transfer race over the weekend.

Spurs muscled in on the Gunners' prospective deal for the St-Etienne defender by offering £27m (€30m) plus bonuses.

But rather than being scared off by that bid, Emirates chiefs have decided to match it.

St-Etienne are now waiting to see who Saliba would rather sign for, as well as if Tottenham will try to get one over on their rivals.
