Marseille getting serious about Arsenal defender Saliba: Real international potential

Olympique Marseille are getting serious about a deal for Arsenal defender William Saliba.

After a successful six-month loan with Nice, Saliba is now wanted back in France next season by OM.

Vincent Menichini, of Nice-Matin, reports: "For a player barely twenty, he exudes an impressive maturity on the field, especially for a player landed in the middle of a complicated season.

"At first glance, we saw real international potential. He is elegant, easy to move, he never panics, he is strong and he has his head on his shoulders. He has all the qualities of a modern defender. For me, he's really top level technically. Apart from Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Fonte and Botman, he has no equivalent in Ligue 1."
