Loaned without a purchase option to OM, William Saliba risks being highly coveted at the end of the season which already makes his transfer very complicated final in Marseille.

In search of defensive reinforcements during the summer transfer window, OM notably obtained the loan of William Saliba . After six promising months at OGC Nice , the former defender of ASSE did not fit into the plans of Mikel Arteta at Arsenal and therefore chose OM to bounce back. And the choice seems to be the right one since the international hopes shines in Marseille where he is the boss of the defense of Jorge Sampaoli . However, William Saliba is loaned without a purchase option, which makes his final transfer almost impossible at the end of the season, as emphasized by the former Marseillais, Jean-Charles de Bono .

“I don’t see much point for Arsenal to say: here we sell it to you for 10M €”

“Saliba for me, it will be very expensive. Today, he has established himself as a starter and as Captain of the French Under-21 team. He has a huge progression, some European clubs are watching him very closely. It won't just be Olympique de Marseille! They do not even have priority on the file. If Arsenal are going to sell him, they're going to want to make as much money as possible! Otherwise, they're going to want to grab it to play. He proves that at OM, with a lot of pressure in front of 60,000 people and what is happening around, he manages to impose himself as the best defender and indisputable holder … I do not see the point of 'Arsenal to say: here we sell it to you for 10M €. And imagine that things go badly for some with the Blues and that he is called in A at the end of the season. There, I do not know how it will be possible! », He says to FootballClubdeMarseille.
