William Saliba A Done Deal

With the gunners usual problem being their poor defensive tactics season after season, costing their bid for the top four, they might have cracked the nut at last. Arsenal are on the verge of signing William Saliba after agreeing an initial deal worth £26.9m with Saint-Etienne, according to French outlet RMC Sport.

Saliba is a product of the Saint-Etienne youth system after joining the club as a child and he emerged as one of the most highly-rated centre-backs in French football after breaking into the first team with 19 appearances last season.

The 19-year-old put in a number of impressive displays at the back to help Saint-Etienne finish fourth in Ligue 1 and they ended the campaign with one of the best defensive records in the division having conceded 41 goals in their 38 games.

Having attracted Arsenal and their North London rivals- Tottenham with his prowess at the back line, it has emerged that the Gunners have emerged as the clear favorites following weeks of negotiations.
