OM trembles, Milan leans on Saliba

On loan without a purchase option from Arsenal, William Saliba is having an exceptional season at Olympique de Marseille.

Indisputable holder in the eyes of Jorge Sampaoli, William Saliba is not certain to stay at OM next season. On the contrary, Pablo Longoria will have a lot to do to keep the French international hopes, loaned without option to buy by Arsenal. The president of Olympique de Marseille is betting on a new loan from William Saliba but the task may be very difficult. Several options are available to Arsenal: keep the Olympian defender in order to make him a starter next season in the Premier League, or sell William Saliba to the highest bidder in the event that Arsenal do not wish to keep him. If scenario 2 is chosen, AC Milan could be a serious competitor to OM according to information from the Daily Mirror, which reveals that the Lombard club is very interested in the profile of the 21-year-old defender.

AC Milan very interested in Saliba in the transfer window

For the time being, no offer has been sent by the leaders of AC Milan, whose club is in the process of selling. But during the summer transfer window, the current leader of Serie A could go on the offensive with the aim of recruiting William Saliba definitively from Arsenal. A blow for Olympique de Marseille, which sees the arrival in this case of a major competitor, with significant financial means and an attractive sports project with a guaranteed place for the next edition of the Champions League. In this case, the noose is tightening more and more for Pablo Longoria, who sees his chances of keeping William Saliba shrinking over the weeks. Internally in Marseille, however, we were optimistic about the final signing of the French defender in the event of OM qualifying for the Champions League. And for good reason, the will of the player will be decisive and it turns out that William Saliba feels very good in Marseille. Six months before the World Cup in Qatar, this is obviously Pablo Longoria’s biggest argument.
