Le10 Sport: Arsenal in advanced discussions to sign Saint-Etienne's Saliba
- The Gunners and Manchester United have been chasing the 18-year-old for weeks.
- Arsenal have apparently won the race to sign the Frenchman and are in advanced talks.
- The centre-back would cost around €30 million.
According to French media outlet Le10 Sport, Willian Saliba has edged closer to a deal with the Gunners.
The highly-rated youngster is said to be in advanced talks over a move to the Emirates which would reportedly cost Arsenal around €30 million.
Previously, talks over a transfer have stalled due to Saint-Etienne wanting to keep the centre-back on loan next season. The Gunners were not ready to accept those terms and it is unclear whether their position has changed.
This season Saliba has played a part in 19 games across all competitions for Saint-Etienne.
