William Saliba is a wanted man having enjoyed a fine breakthrough season with Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1. Saliba’s form has reportedly caught the attention of both Manchester City and Manchester United, with both clubs in need of defensive reinforcements and hoping to strengthen their back-lines this summer. William Saliba looks set for a move to Arsenal According to The Sun, Arsenal have beaten them to it and have reached an agreement with the centre-back to bring him to the Emirates on a five-year deal as they seek a replacement for Laurent Koscielny. The 6ft4in defender has been backed for a bright future and should only get better considering he is only 18-years-old. Below talkSPORT.com gives an in-depth insight into all you need to know about Saliba… [boxout headline=”William Saliba – 2018/19″]Age: 18 Club: Saint-Etienne Position: Defender Nationality: France All competition appearances: 19 Starts: 13 Substituted: 3 Yellow cards: 1 Pass success rate: 85.6 per cent Tackles per game: 2 Interceptions per game: 1.8 Clearances per game: 2.7 Aerial duels won per game: 1.8 Dribbles per game: 0.6 [/boxout] What’s the gossip? Reports in France claim Arsenal have all-but concluded a deal to sign Saliba on a five-year contract. The Gunners were among a host of clubs keeping tabs on the defender, with Real Madrid and both Manchester clubs tracking his progress. Saliba’s representative, Djibril Niang had added fuel to the fire over where he would could be heading next, by uploading an Instagram story of himself inside a bar in Manchester recently. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] Club career so far? The Bondy-born defender began playing football at the age of six and was coached by the father of PSG and World Cup-winning striker Kylian Mbappe. He played for Saint-Etienne youth set-up for two years before signing his first professional contract, aged 17, in May 2018. Saliba then made his first professional appearance for the club early last season in September 2018. Last season he played 16 times in the league and 19 in all competitions. He has been compared to Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane How much is he likely to cost? While Arsenal have reportedly reached an agreement for Saliba, a fee is still to be decided between the two clubs. The French side are believed to want around £26million, but Arsenal will be hoping to thrash out a lower deal given they only have a £40million transfer budget to work with. That can of course increase through player sales, though it is almost impossible to sign an above-average player for under £50million – let alone any individual considered among the elite and Emery will probably have to pay the going rate if he wants to secure Saliba. The defender will cost £26million if Arsenal complete a deal What is being said about him? Former Arsenal star Lauren said: “He’s strong, tall, can come out of the back with the ball and an international for France. “He reads the game very well, which is important for a player at the back, you have to anticipate and he looks very good at just 18, so the future is bright.” Jose Mourinho, former Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid boss said: “William Saliba has all the assets to become a good player, just like Kurt Zouma, who I signed [from Saint-Etienne].” he told RMC. Saliba has won high praise from former Gunner Lauren How will he fit into Arsenal’s team? Event though he’s still only a teenager, Saliba is physically imposing and is more than capable of holding his own against burly forwards in the heart of defence. The club are keen to replace long-serving captain Koscielny, who has been ravaged by injuries over the past couple of seasons and Saliba would be a long-term replacement at centre-back, where he would compliment the uncompromising style of Sokratis. With Hector Bellerin still sidelined, do not be surprised to see Saliba operate as a right-back, where he played on numerous occasions when called upon to do so last season. Is this how Saliba will fit in at Arsenal?

She Wore A Yellow Ribbon

Rumours circulated yesterday that Arsenal had agreed terms with 18-year-old French central defender William Saliba. All is to remain is to agree a fee with St Etienne. Part of the expected deal is that Saliba remains at St Etienne on loan for next season. It is a term that makes complete sense. Whilst most will […]

UNAI EMERY is plotting Arsenal’s route back to the top and his ideal defensive signings suggest a return to the style that the club are renowned for. Last season saw the “sexy football” style that became a trademark of Arsene Wenger’s tenure drop off somewhat, particularly compared to league leaders Manchester City. How we expect the Gunners to line up Rebuilding the squad is going to be a tough task for Emery and incoming technical director Edu thanks to the lack of Champions League football – and funds – to draw players in. Therefore the defence should take priority following a season that saw Newcastle United, Leicester City and Everton concede fewer goals. The defenders most touted to join are Saint-Etienne youngster William Saliba, Paris Saint-Germain’s Presnel Kimpembe and Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney. Pulling off all three deals would represent a significant shift in how Arsenal play out from the back, as Sun Sport investigates. BUILT FROM THE BACK Mistakes prevailed at Emirates Stadium last season and the Gunners need players who are far more composed and competent in possession. Coming through the PSG academy, Kimpembe has emerged at a time when the French club are dominant and that has moulded him in the style that Arsenal want. With a 93 percent pass completion rate and just 2 clearances made per game, he is used to calming the play down and moving the ball on without issue. Saliba only averages 2.7 clearances out with a team which experiences greater pressure, indicating his ability to work it out from the back rather than hoof it clear. This sense is emphasised by Kimpembe playing just 2 successful long balls a match, Saliba also coming in low at 2.9. Kimpembe could be the one to make way as PSG need cash for new signings Saliba is said to be arriving for £27million Compare this to Arsenal’s current defenders and the difference is startling. Sokratis Papadopoulous, by many accounts a popular player likely to stay in the side next year, hits the ball clear 4.3 times a game and completes 4.1 long balls. Rob Holding sends out 3.6 long passes per match and the oft-lambasted Shkodran Mustafi completes 3.1 lumps up pitch each time he plays, misplacing 4.4 attempted passes. Competency in playing a short game at the back is key in alleviating pressure and transitioning to attack accurately, two features Arsenal have lacked of late. This duo appear to prefer that build-it-from-the-back mentality and don’t want to rush proceedings, which are great signs for fans of sexy football. [pod_component pod_component_config_id=”20190513-countdowntimer-LnhPMzwOC” pod_component_config_url=”https://www.thesun.co.uk/nu-sun-pod-component-config-prod/20190513-countdowntimer-LnhPMzwOC.json” pod_component_config_loader_url=”https://www.thesun.co.uk/nu-sun-pod-loaders-prod/1.62.2/componentLoader.js?72368″ src=”https%3A%2F%2Fiframe.thesun.co.uk%2Fnu-sun-pod-widgets-prod%2Fiframe-pod.html%3Fid%3D20190513-countdowntimer-LnhPMzwOC%26script%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.thesun.co.uk%2Fnu-sun-pod-loaders-prod%2F1.62.2%2FcomponentLoader.js%3F72368%26config%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.thesun.co.uk%2Fnu-sun-pod-component-config-prod%2F20190513-countdowntimer-LnhPMzwOC.json”] TIMING IS KEY Saliba may only be 18 but he was a key part of Saint-Etienne’s run to fourth in Ligue 1 during the second half of the campaign. A run-in that consisted of seven wins, two draws and a lone defeat was pretty much the opposite of the Gunners’ own attempt at qualifying for the Champions League. In that, towering defender Saliba emerged as an expert at timing tackles and he made an average of 2 per game last year, attempting 2.5. Likewise, Kimpembe’s performances for runaway champions PSG saw him register 2.1 tackles per game from 2.6 attempted. These figures trounce the current crop; Laurent Koscielny managing just a single tackle per game last season, behind Mustafi (1.8), Sokratis (1.7) and Rob Holding (1.1). Mustafi’s erros became an all too frequent feature of the Gunners’ run-in Wenger’s best teams, in particular the 2003/04 Invincibles, were masters of shutting out their opponents and this allowed the attack to take risks and flourish. However, Arsenal’s current defenders contributed to the fourth-worst disciplinary record last season as they showed the willingness to get stuck in – but not the nous. Sokratis, for example, committed 1.5 fouls per game and prospective pairing Saliba and Kimpembe come in some way below this, the teenager averaging a mere 0.6. FULL OF IT The full-back positions have been subject to much rotation over the season just finished, thanks to Hector Bellerin’s injury troubles and Sead Kolasinac’s inconsistency. With the Bosnian wanted by Barcelona and positional rival Nacho Monreal reportedly also up for an exit, a number of players have been linked to come in. Nicolas Tagliafico has committed to Ajax and Alberto Moreno is a cheap option but, if the Gunners can raise the £25million required, Kieran Tierney is their best bet. The Celtic defender hit six assists in an injury-hit 2018/19 after 11 the year before. Tierney, 22, is a hugely popular figure with Celtic fans Monreal is 33 and cannot be relied on as more than a back-up next season, whereas Kolasinac’s decision making isn’t good enough – as exemplified by infuriatingly squandering a chance to set up his teammates in the Europa League final. Tierney is the dynamic, ambitious option that can fit into Emery’s 3-5-2 system perfectly and race up and down the touchline all day. On that point, Hector Bellerin’s position as first-choice right-back shouldn’t be challenged this summer. Before his major knee injury in January, the Spaniard was having a good season with five assists. Replacement Ainsley Maitland-Niles is proactive in defence, getting stuck in with 3.1 attempted tackles per game to Bellerin’s 1.2, but doesn’t have a reliable final ball as of yet.
