There is plenty of hope about the arrival of William Saliba and he’s proving that Arsenal fans have every right to be excited.

At 18 years of age, he is holding down a regular starting spot in Ligue 1 and showing exactly why Arsenal were so keen to get hold of him.

There were reports emerging last week that suggested those behind the scenes at the Emirates feel he’ll be ready for first-team football next season – if he continues to show this level of maturity and defensive awareness for someone so young, there won’t be many arguing with them.

Should Saliba start for Arsenal next season?
