Deal Close: Arsenal beat Tottenham in bid to sign €30m star

Arsenal are reportedly set to successfully fend off Tottenham and secure the signing of Saint Etienne youngster William Saliba.

The Gunners were woeful defensively last year, as they conceded 51 goals in 38 Premier League games which in turn gave them the second worst defensive record of the top nine sides.

In turn, it’s no surprise that Unai Emery has been linked with strengthening his backline, and it appears as though he has secured a long-term solution.

According to The Guardian, Saliba has opted to join Arsenal and will snub Spurs after they tried to hijack their move late on, in a deal that will cost €30m plus bonuses while he is expected to pen a five-year deal as he prepares to undergo a medical at some stage.
