Saliba will still remain with Saint-Etienne, though, on loan until the end of next season.

Arsenal will have to wait until the 2020/21 to see him play at the Emirates.

The Gunner fought off strong competition from Tottenham to get the centre-half’s approval over a transfer.

Unai Emery’s side are now poised to confirm the deal once Saliba passes his medical.
