Ligue 1 Club hopeful of loan move for Arsenal star

Arsenal are reportedly exploring the possibility
of sending center back, William Saliba back out on loan to France before the transfer window closes next Monday.

The 19-year-old joined up with his teammates at the Emirates Stadium in the summer after spending the 2019-20 season on loan at former club Saint-Etienne, but Saliba is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Gunners.

According to news outlets in London, Mikel Arteta is considering loaning out the youngster once again in a bid to help the teenager gain more first-team experience.

The report claims that current Ligue 1 leaders Rennes would be interested in signing Saliba on a temporary basis, with the centre-back having made 28 appearances in the French top flight during his two seasons in the Saint-Etienne first team.

Saliba currently finds himself behind Rob Holding, David Luiz and Gabriel Magalhaes in the pecking order at Arsenal, while fellow centre-backs Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos are both being linked with moves away from Emirate before next Monday’s deadline.
