Saliba To Be Sidelined For Six Weeks

William Saliba will spend at least six weeks on the sidelines after undergoing has an operation to fix the adductor issue that has troubled him since the end of last season.

The centre-back, who signed for Arsenal in a £27 million deal this summer before returning to Saint-Etienne on loan, missed the opening weekend of the new Ligue 1 campaign despite making an appearance in a pre-season friendly against Newcastle on 3 August.

Arsenal are said to have agreed to the operation. While it doesn’t affect our immediate plans for the 18-year-old, it’s obviously a slight concern that hes gone under the knife.

Here’s hoping he makes a swift recovery and starts to get games under his belt before Christmas. We’re counting on him building his experience for senior football in the next 12 months before re-joining us for next year.
