Rennes, Benfica rival Marseille for unsettled Arsenal defender Saliba

The interest in Arsenal defender William Saliba.

While his future with Arsenal remains unclear, Saliba's six month loan with Nice last season has sparked interest from across Europe.

The France U21 defender is wanted back at OGCN next season, while Benfica and Olympique Marseille are also keen, reports Ouest France.

New Rennes sporting director Florian Maurice is another interested and has already held talks with Saliba's minders.

At Arsenal, meanwhile, despite Saliba's reputation, his future is clouded as manager Mikel Arteta seeks other centre-half options.
