Arteta demands Arsenal refuse all offers for Saliba

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has told management he doesn't want William Saliba sold.

The defender is wanted by Olympique Marseille, where he spent last season on-loan.

Marseille have been boosted by the French football's strict financial watchdog, DNCG, removing previous restrictions on spending with the club keen to make a first summer signing.

But Arteta is unwilling to sell the defender and is keen to first get a look at Saliba on Arsenal's pre-season tour of America, says the Daily Mail.

Saliba has also stated he is prepared to work for a place at Arsenal next season.

However, the defender also is eager to stay in France's World Cup thoughts.
