William Saliba admits that he ignored Arsenal’s transfer advice when he pushed and pushed for a move to Marseille on credit.


Need to sweat for the shirt

The top-rated defender will be campaigning 2021-22 at home after seeing a deal made throughout the season – after spending a few months with Nice at the end. Those at Emirates Stadium have longed to see the 20-year-old stay in England as they strive to unleash his full potential, but these pleas fell on deaf ears. William Saliba said after the official opening in Marseille that he spoke to Pablo Longoria, the manager.

Saliba knew that there he was going to play this season, with the stadium on fire and the fans waiting for a lot. For a young 20-year-old player, this can only be beneficial. William is the one who chose Marseille. Arsenal preferred William to go to England, but they knew the choice was right here and pushed and pushed. Marseille is one of the best clubs in France, with a lot of fervor in the city and country. You need to sweat for your shirt when you’re here.


A little about William Saliba

Arsenal secured a £ 27m deal for William Saliba during the summer of 2019, and it was agreed that he would stay at Saint-Etienne for one more season. As soon as this loan agreement came to an end, the promising Frenchman made his way to north London. Big things were expected of him, with gunners needing half-inspiration from somewhere, but Arteta preferred other options.

William Saliba is still awaiting a competitive debut for Arsenal, having just figured out U23 fixtures and saw 22 rides for Nice after contacting them in January. He is now aiming for further development in Marseille, but he remains under contract at Emirates Stadium until 2024 and may still make a breakthrough there at some point.
