REVEALED: Marseille met with agent of Arsenal defender Saliba in August

Olympique Marseille made an attempt in August to buy Arsenal defender William Saliba, it has been revealed.

Saliba spent last season on-loan with OM and has been outstanding for the Gunners so far this term.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano declared last night: "Olympique de Marseille had a direct meeting with Saliba's agent in August, but it was then impossible to negotiate the price with Arsenal.

"They considered William untouchable. There was not even a direct discussion."

Saliba's deal with Arsenal expires in 2024.
