Marseille never first choice for Arsenal defender Saliba

Olympique Marseille was never the first choice of Arsenal defender William Saliba this season, it has been revealed.

Saliba, on a straight loan with OM, has been a revelation this season, where many local pundits rate him the best performing defender in Ligue 1.

L'Equipe says, however, Saliba's priority was to move to Nice.

The young defender wanted return to OGCN, where he spent the previous season on-loan.

Indeed, a source says: "OM was not part of his plans".

However in the end, Saliba and Nice couldn't reach an agreement.
