While OM were hoping to be able to keep William Saliba, the situation is getting more complicated since Mikel Arteta will count on his defender for next season.

This summer, the Olympique de Marseille obtained the loan without option to buy from William Saliba who was coming out of a good second part of the season at 'OGC Nice where it was also loaned. And the defender trained at ASSE wasted no time in establishing himself as the boss of the defense of Jorge Sampaoli . So much so that Pablo Longoria was already looking for a way to keep William Saliba at the end of the season. This could mean a new loan or a permanent transfer.

Arteta changes his plans for Saliba

However, it is Arsenal who will have the last word in this matter since the loan of William Saliba does not come with a purchase option. And while Mikel Arteta has long seemed reluctant to rely on the current OM defender, the Spanish technician has reportedly changed his plans. According to journalist Ekrem Konur , the Arsenal coach now relies on William Saliba whom he wants to repatriate at the end of the season.
