Arsenal Football Club has secured the future of young French defender William Saliba by signing him to a new four-year contract. The 20-year-old was signed by Arsenal from Saint-Etienne in 2019 for a fee of £27 million, but it has taken some time for him to establish himself in the club’s first team.

After spending the 2019/20 season on loan at Saint-Etienne, Saliba returned to Arsenal last summer and was expected to play a key role in the team’s defence. However, he was left out of the club’s Premier League and Europa League squads, leading to speculation that he might be loaned out or sold.

Despite this setback, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has remained convinced of Saliba’s potential and has decided to keep him at the club. The new four-year contract is a clear sign of the club’s faith in the young defender and their commitment to developing him into a top-class player.
