Always thinking about the future, Arsenal decided to splash the cash over the summer on Saint-Etienne’s William Saliba.
The Gunners spent €30m on the young centre-back, deciding he had the attributes to help them in the long run in their defence; an area they have struggled to stabilise in recent years.
However, they didn’t bring him in straight away, and the 18-year-old was sent back to Saint-Étienne for the current campaign in order to get some more first-team football under his belt before trying to make room for himself at the Emirates.
Unfortunately, Saliba has suffered two frustrating setbacks (first a hamstring injury followed by a metatarsal fracture), which means he’s only made eight league appearances so far.
