Kicker say Bayer Leverkusen are keen to sign William Saliba from Arsenal during the transfer window.
The center-back spent the second half of 2020/21 in Ligue 1 with Nice, performing for the club.
He has yet to make his first Arsenal appearance in a £ 27 million arrival from Saint-Etienne in summer 2019.
If the Gunners sold the young Frenchman, they would want their money back, although it’s not certain they actually want to offload it.
Arsenal could end up with a defensive conundrum this summer.
David Luiz is about to leave and that could open a window of opportunity for Saliba to win a chance.
The 20-year-old looks set for a bright future and after 22 appearances for Nice he will want a chance at Arsenal.
The Gunners will not be in European competition in 2021/22. As a result, the blood of some of the youngsters at the club could make sense.
One option could be for Arsenal to consider loaning him out again next season.
It seems some fans are not as excited about the idea and would rather be given a chance at Emirates Stadium.
Here’s what fans had to say about the rumor.
