Rennes target Arsenal defender William Saliba

Arsenal defender William Saliba is being linked with a return to France.

Saliba, signed from St Etienne a year ago before finally landing at Arsenal after a season on-loan at ASSE, is yet to make a debut for his new club.

As such, Ouest-France says Champions League qualifiers Rennes are keen on taking Saliba on a season-long loan.

Rennes are in advanced talks for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, but also have Saliba on the radar.

After last night's Carabao Cup win over Liverpool, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta insisted Saliba's introduction will not be rushed.
