Sell him now after getting a chance and looking so good would give Arteta’s critics ammunition. When we finally look like we have sorted a defence and its got some length in its prospective years to play together, why pit up with such media shite. Come out and say he aint for sale

He should do, but I suspect it will make him look just as silly considering the calls for Saliba's inclusion last season and Arteta saying he wasn't ready. If he turns all "No, Saliba is ours" it might make him look like he doesn't know what he is doing, reactionary. On top of that, he doesn't want to look like he is begging the player to stay, not a good look - if he comes out with Saliba is not for sale and Saliba says I want to go.

Maybe I am looking too much into it, but I think he got a lot of egg on his face regarding Guendouzi and Saliba, 2 players he discarded that shone big time last season.

William Saliba is once again seeing a permanent move to Marseille speculated on, but CaughtOffside claims that Arsenal would only accept a “crazy” offer for the defender.

The highly-rated French centre-half has been absorbed back into the Gunners fold this summer after spending time back in his homeland on loan.



Lol


More hyped up, media driven BS aimed to cause unrest.

And you guys fall for it every time lol

Tets doesn't give a crap about that, especially if Saliba isn't going to sign an extension anyway.

He knows we need more signings, but can't get them without exiting some players. He's messed that up massively with his treatment of Bellerin, Pepe and AMN, so Saliba is the only golden goose he has. Similar to Joe Willock last year, he is the only one of our potential outgoing players worth any money.

Right so he was seen on the training ground and that means he’s also got a new contract he’s about to sign does it?

OK then.


Yeah, he was at the training ground, where contracts get signed...

You're getting the hang of this now :clap:


Still no contract signed, your comments about his agent and insinuating the signing of a contract was 2 1/2 weeks ago now.

I highly doubt a new contract will get signed in 2022. The key to the whole deal is showing Saliba that he has a future in the team so he'll need to get game time and Arteta will have to follow through on his word before a new contract is agreed.

Problem for us is that will leave us in a weak position with a year left, it also means that if Arteta doesn’t play him enough he’ll be off.

This is precisely why I didn’t agree with the loan and running down his contract to 2 years, it’s all very good saying it was for his development, but if that’s the case we should have got him to sign a new contract last summer, either that or bring him back to convince him he’s part of our plans so that he would re-sign this summer.

As it is now his stock has risen, he knows what it’s like to play regularly and he’s now a French international so the argument not to play him has completely evaporated.

Yeah, it's less than ideal, but the best path forward is playing him every week and if he proves to be good enough for the PL, offer him a lucrative new deal and hopefully the option of CL in 23-24.

Yes I agree that is the best route now, I guess my worry is that it might not happen as Arteta has shown a real reluctance to use him up till now and we’ve seen other players kept only not to feature much.

Devaluing an asset doesn’t seem to matter to him.

Saliba wasnt ready before, now he is. I actually think he’ll be a regular starter this season and displace White. Maybe Im wrong but the kid is class.

Maybe. Or, we give him valuable minutes, and he still doesn't extend, leaving us in a position where we're essentially training him on our dime for someone else to benefit.
