Paul Merson fears William Saliba will have to be patient when he joins Arsenal in the summer after Mikel Arteta strengthened Arsenal's defence during the January transfer window.

Arteta has since replaced Unai Emery in the Arsenal hotseat and bolstered his backline last month with the loan signing of Pablo Mari who he knew from his time at Manchester City.

Arsenal have the option to make the Spaniard's move a permanent one at the end of the season and Merson believes that could cause a 'conflict' if Saliba is forced to bide his time.

He's brought two defenders in with Cedric and Pablo Mari, and he's got William Saliba coming in from France in the summer.

'Part of me wonders whether he wanted Mari because Saliba isn't his signing, and there could be some conflict there.

Arsenal have undoubtedly improved defensively under their new manager, but the goals have dried up for the likes of Alexandre Lacazette who hasn't scored since Arteta's arrival.
