Reliable reporter Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal are ‘really happy’ with defender William Saliba.
And a number of Gunners fans have been reacting to the news on social media.
The 20-year-old, who cost the club £27m back in 2019, joined Marseille on loan over the summer. He’s already spent time on loan at Saint-Etienne and OGC Nice but is now with Les Phocéens, where he has been a regular.
Romano took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, claiming the Gunners are following Saliba closely and recently informed the defender that they trust him 100 per cent for the future.
Saliba is expected to return to the Emirates next summer ahead of a possible breakthrough campaign in north London.
Will Saliba be an Arsenal regular next season?
Yes, he's the future!
No, still needs time!
Arsenal fans react
Romano’s Twitter post received plenty of interaction, with these Arsenal supporters delighted. One even described it as ‘great news’.
“Oh my days our defence is set”
“Yessssss. Will be so much better than Holding. Just curious what it would be like if he was given an opportunity at Arsenal earlier than next season”
“Great news! He will do well for us when he is back!”
“William Saliba, Ben White and Gabriel. Wow.”
“Tears in my eyes”
“GET IN BOYS”
