Wiliam Saliba is set to return to Arsenal in the summer and most hope that Mikel Arteta will finally integrate him into the first team.

In France, Marseille are keen to sign one of their standout stars from this season, but despite a lot of talk, it seems like they don’t have the money, as this article from Le10Sport explains.

Saliba, still only 21, has played a total of 4,315 minutes this season across 48 games.

He will have another two years remaining on his Arsenal contract when he returns to the club this season and is wanted by some of the biggest names in European football.
