London calling for Les Verts starlet
Saint-Etienne’s William Saliba is drawing plenty of English interest ahead of a potential move away from Les Verts this summer.
Radio Monte Carlo has reported Premier League outfit Arsenal will match the bid of 30m euros plus bonuses offer made by their north London rivals Tottenham on Saturday for the 18-year-old centre-back.
Spurs are believed to have held a meeting with Les Verts officials over the weekend where the bid was made.
But the French club are in no rush to complete the deal, which would see Saliba loaned back to the Ligue 1 club, until they hear what Arsenal have to say.
Saint-Etienne are waiting to hear which club Saliba would prefer to join and believe by delaying concluding a deal with either side, they could incite a bidding war between the Premier League clubs.
