Arsenal has completed the signing of William Saliba from Saint-Etienne for €30m (£26.9m).
The French defender was loaned back to the Ligue 1 club and he is expected to join to the Gunners next season.
Speaking about the move, Saliba said:
“Since I was little, I’ve been watching Arsenal play in the Champions League and so on, and there are a lot of French players who have come through here.”
Arsenal manager, Unai Emery added
Many teams wanted him but he decided he wanted to come to us and be part of our future.
Saliba will become Gunners third summer signing.
