EPL: Arsenal boss Arteta ready to hand Saliba new contract

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, is ready to hand William Saliba a new contract.

Saliba is returning to the Gunners after a superb loan with Olympique Marseille.

L’Equipe says Arteta is ready to show Saliba how highly regarded he is in north London by offering him a new contract.

The Gunners boss is ‘ready to count’ on the centre-back next season and will seek to tie him down to a new deal in order to fend off interest from Marseille in particular.

The Ligue 1 side have made no secret of their desire to reacquire Saliba ahead of the next campaign, with Marseille manager Jorge Sampaoli understood to be desperate to sign the four-time French international.

While speculation surrounding Saliba being offered a new Gunners deal will serve as a setback to Marseille, the Ligue 1 runners-up haven’t abandoned hope of striking another deal this summer.
