St Etienne defender Saliba: I will go to Arsenal next season

St Etienne defender William Saliba says he cannot allow thoughts about next season with Arsenal to enter his mind.

Saliba signed for the Gunners last summer before being loaned back for this campaign. The young centre-half has now confirmed he expects to move to London this summer.

"For the moment, I am 300% in Saint-Etienne, I have not put my mind elsewhere. Next season I will be at Arsenal," said Saliba.

"But I'm still following their results."

Saliba and ASSE meet Epinal tonight in the quarterfinals of the Coupe de France.
