Arsenal have made advances in their pursuit of Saint-Étienne defender William Saliba and talks between the two clubs are going well.

With Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal ageing, and Shkodran Mustafi unconvincing, Arsenal should be inclined to spend a significant portion of their transfer budget on defensive reinforcements.



Unai Emery will be desperate to improve his defence, having conceded 51 goals in the Premier League last season - more than Everton and Newcastle.

Saint-Étienne also want to take Saliba back on loan for the 2019/20 season, ensuring the loss would not be so significant in the short-term.

Similarly to Kurt Zouma's switch to 2014, a loan back would allow the player time to develop in a less pressured environment and in familiar surroundings.
