Arsenal are closing in on their second signing of the summer window and the deal could be announced in a few days if finalized.

The Gunners are in advanced talks to sign the 18-year-old William Saliba for a fee yet to be finalised but thought to be in the region of £25million.

“He will stay at the club this season,” Romeyer is quoted in France as saying. “It is an imperative condition should we come to an agreement for his transfer. It’s also William’s wish.”

As a result, Arsenal are seeking to make a small initial payment this summer given Saliba will not be available to represent the club for another 12 months, a move which would also enable the club to keep the vast majority of their modest transfer budget for other targets.
However, there is growing confidence that an agreement can be reached with Saint-Etienne.
Arsenal remain interested in a deal for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney but have so far shown no willingness to match the Scottish champions’ £25m valuation. Napoli are monitoring the situation and are ready to rival the Gunners for his signature.
