Ready without an option to buy from Arsenal, William Saliba is not at all certain to stay at Olympique de Marseille next season. The central defender says he is fulfilled in the Marseille city, without hiding his attraction for the Gunners.

OM: Saliba sets the trend for his future

William Saliba does not hide his attraction to Arsenal.

Back at the Commanderie, William Saliba had to find Olympique de Marseille with two stars in his eyes.

The no-international tricolor has just experienced his first gathering in the French team, with encouraging performances the key.

Arteta wants Saliba back

The public at the Vlodrome obviously loved their appearance against Cte d’Ivoire (2-1) last week. On the other hand, the phocen club may have experienced more mixed feelings.

Indeed, Saliba’s new status is not good news for the management, which wants to negotiate a permanent transfer following his loan without a purchase option. The value of Arsenal’s centre-back will further increase and move away from the possibilities of chairman Pablo Longoria. Anyway, not to mention the amount, the file was already announced to be difficult as the manager of the Gunners Mikel Arteta praises the progress of the French.

The French followed and flattered by Arsenal

The London club is closely following the season of its player Marseille. Which does not leave Saliba insensitive. They are often in contact with my agent, confirmed the native of Bondy to the newspaper L’Equipe. They send me messages. They watch my games. They tell me that we have to continue like this. Despite Arteta’s indifference since joining the group in 2020, the former Stphanois is flattered.

It must be said that at 21, the Olympian has a real opportunity to impose himself within a prestigious team, and to prove to his manager that he was wrong, all in a higher championship. As a result, Saliba says he is ready to come back with the simple guarantee of not staying away. Of course I can’t just be on the bench at Arsenal and be happy, he warned. I want to play starter. Afterwards, if I enter the rotation as a substitute, it’s not like staying with the Under-23s and never being in the squad.

Savoring his last months at OM?

His attraction to the Gunners seems obvious. So much so that the defender under contract until 2024 thinks of savoring what could be his last months in Marseille. If I want to stay? This club and this public are magnificent so I want to make the most of it by the end of the season, as if I was never going to come back, he imagined. There are two months left, I want to savor every moment, home in particular. Then we’ll see. If I come back, it will be with great, great pleasure. OM have been warned, Saliba will not force his transfer as Pol Lirola was able to do last summer.
