According to information from Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, Mikel Arteta would like to register Saliba's return after his loan is over. But according to another reporter Tom Williams , the OM can remain hopeful in this matter especially because of competition from Arsenal .

“Difficult to envisage a long-term future at Arsenal for Saliba”

“Since we are still relatively early in the season, a lot can still happen by the end of the campaign. If Arsenal keep the momentum going and Ben White and Gabriel settle more into the starting XI, it will be very difficult for Saliba to win in this team no matter how he plays. If he can keep the momentum going and Marseille are having a good season, I'm sure they would like to keep him, and if he enjoyed his time at the club, maybe he will want to stay. The fact that there is this competition at Arsenal, added to the fact that Arteta clearly didn't like him initially, even though he's now getting used to the idea of ​​finding a place for him, it makes it hard to envision a long-term future for Saliba at the Gunners, ”the journalist told Sky Sports.
