Tottenham bid to beat Arsenal for St Etienne defender William Saliba

Tottenham bid to beat Arsenal for St Etienne defender William Saliba

A meeting is set to take place on Saturday, when Tottenham will look to finalise a deal for Saliba.

Arsenal had delved deep in negotiations for the €30m rated defender but Saint-Étienne were unable to accept the payment structure suggested by Arsenal.

And the deal agreed would have allowed them to secure the France under-20 international's signature but also concentrate the bulk of their funds on players to immediately improve their squad, with Bondy-born Saliba only arriving in 12 months' time.

Arsenal's fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur could be about to beat them in the race to sign Saint Etienne central defender William Saliba.

"Tottenham have just outbid Arsenal for William Saliba, including €30m excluding bonuses, which goes above & beyond Sainté's demands".

Xi urges Trump to ease N Korea sanctions
Ortagus said Washington's goal remained the complete elimination of all of North Korea's weapons of mass destruction. But I don't think that the administration has ever characterized a freeze as being the end goal.

But their bitter nemesis Tottenham Hotspur, who had been keeping tabs on the situation, have made a move to sabotage Arsenal's nearly done deal.

The youngster is said not to be too keen on leaving Roma but does want a better contract and significant wage increase and that is where Juve, Arsenal and Tottenham come in, they can offer far better terms than what Roma can.

The Scottish champions haven't been satisfied with the offers tabled by Arsenal and an agreement is still someway off.

The Arsenal boss faces fresh problems at the back after Laurent Koscielny refused to travel to the United States of America for the club's pre-season tour.

Saliba, who made 16 appearances in Ligue 1 last season, has vast potential and looks set for a very bright future.
