Saliba set for Arsenal stay
Football Transfer Centre

Arsenal are planning to keep William Saliba next season amid interest from Real Madrid, Defensa Central claims.

The centre-back has not made a competitive appearance for the Gunners. He is currently in his third loan spell away from the club.

Saliba has left a strong impression with his performances with Marseille, but the Gunners have no plans to entertain his permanent exit.

Les Phoceens can't re-sign him because of a transfer ban, but it has recently emerged that Real Madrid could make an approach.

The Gunners are aware of the developing interest, but they are likely to integrate him into the first-team plans of Mikel Arteta.

Saliba's current deal expires in the summer of 2024. The hierarchy are expected to open talks over a renewal later this year.

The defender has spoken about his frustration with the Gunners in the past, but he is open to proving himself if he gets the chance.

Saliba has made 30 appearances in all competitions for Marseille this term.
