Arsenal are reportedly on the brink of completing a deal for William Saliba before sending him back to Saint Etienne on loan for the forthcoming season.

The Gunners are hopeful of securing a £26million deal for the teenage defender, with Tottenham also interested, in what will be their second signing of the summer following the recent capture of Brazilian teenage forward Gabriel Martinelli.

Reports in France last week suggested Arsenal  had an initial bid rejected by Saint-Etienne who want the entire fee up front.

But Football.London  has claimed via journalists in France that talks have continued between the two clubs and they are close to agreeing a deal.
