Arsenal & St Étienne agree €30m deal for William Saliba, player will stay for a season with Les Verts

RMC report that Arsenal and St Étienne have reached a broad-brush €30m agreement for the transfer of 18-year-old central defender William Saliba.

Both sides are continuing to discuss more minor details, including bonuses and clauses based on future performances, which could take a few hours, or a few more days.

The player has already agreed a contract with Arsenal and he will return to St Étienne on loan until the end of the season.

For the moment, Tottenham have not made their opening bid for Saliba, only AS Roma and Wolves had entered into contact with Les Verts, but Arsenal are way too far ahead in the race and the player wants a move to London.
