Saint-Etienne reveal stance on Arsenal, Tottenham target Saliba

Saint-Etienne's new manager Ghislain Printant says the club don't need to sell William Saliba.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are targeting the teenage centre-back.

"The sale of Saliba is not an absolute necessity," Printant told reporters.

"There is no urgency [to do so]. He is courted by clubs.

"From a sporting point of view we want to keep him next season and that's his wish too. He still has room for development [here].

"We will see. Our goal is for him to be with us again this season."
