St Étienne rebuff Arsenal’s opening bid for William Saliba

As reported by L’Équipe transfer window specialist Bilel Ghazi last night, Premier League side Arsenal have had their opening offer of €23m + €7m bonuses for 18-year-old French defender William Saliba rejected by St Étienne.

Les Verts have countered and are asking for €30m guaranteed instead, plus that the player is loaned back for the 2019/20 campaign. Negotiations continue between the two sides.

In the meantime, Tottenham are expected to make a formal bid for Saliba today.
