Puel seeks Arsenal talks as St Etienne want Saliba for Cup final

St Etienne coach Claude Puel has hopes of William Saliba being available for the Coupe de France final.

Saliba, signed by Arsenal last summer before being sent back on-loan for the season, has been training with his new club in London since the French season was abandoned.

Puel admits a short-term arrangement will have to be settled with Arsenal for Saliba to be available for selection.

ASSE and PSG will face-off in the final on July 24 and Puel said, "William is at the end of the contract at the end of the month, he takes great pleasure in training with his team, we will see what can be done to keep him a little longer with us."
