Arsenal defender William Saliba ‘could be sent on loan to a Championship club’

Arsenal defender William Saliba ‘could be sent on loan to a Championship club’ after failed Saint-Etienne move and omission from Mikel Arteta’s Europa League squad

  • William Saliba is set for another loan spell away from Arsenal this season
  • The teenage defender was bought for £27m from Saint-Etienne in 2019
  • He was immediately loaned back to the Ligue 1 club but suffered injuries
  • Saliba was this week excluded from Arsenal’s Europa League squad 

Arsenal are reportedly hoping to send 19-year-old defender William Saliba on loan to a Championship club in the next week. 

Despite the transfer window coming to a close on Monday, Premier League clubs can still do business with those in the Championship until October 16.

And this has opened up the possibility of Arsenal finding a temporary home for their teenage centre-back, who was this week omitted from Mikel Arteta’s Europa League squad, according to Goal.
