Arsenal told to pay £25million for highly rated defender William Saliba

The transfer news are coming in rapidly and in great numbers as several clubs have begun to make big money moves.

One of the clubs expected to be busy this summer is Arsenal. The Premier League club are reportedly weighing up a number of transfer targets as they look to compete for the EPL title next season. However, the Gunners are hampered by their inability to spend after missing out of the lucrative Champions League positions.

It is understood that manager Unai Emery has been provided with a tight budget of around £50 million.

One player that has been linked to the club is Saint Etienne defender William Saliba. Saliba is considered as one of the top-rated young center-back in France and has emerged as a target for several clubs.

Emery wants to revamp the defense with the likes of Mustafi and Carl Jenkinson expected to leave in the summer.

Saliba is viewed as a young defender that could develop into a top talent at the Emirates with Guendouzi a prime example of Emery’s ability to develop young talents.

Saint Etienne have placed a price tag of £25 million for the 18-year-old which could prove to be too much for the Gunners.

It remains to be seen how this transfer will develop with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool reportedly interested in the player.
