Both of the young Frenchman have spent the entirety of the 2021/22 campaign on loan at the Stade Velodrome, but Guendouzi's loan conditions are different to Saliba's.
While the midfielder returned to France knowing full well a permanent switch was the most likely outcome, Saliba is still expected back in North London from this summer onwards.
“I hope William stays here. He's having a great season, he deserves everything that has happened to him. He's a great guy outside, he's had a lot of great games," Guendouzi said.
Both Saliba and Guendouzi were recently handed call-ups to the France national side for the upcoming round of UEFA Nations League matches.
