Arsenal defender William Saliba has said that he wants to give back the love fans gave him at the start of the season. The Frenchman has made a brilliant start to the season.

However, he is looking to maintain the same form throughout the whole season. The Gunners fans are also hoping that he will sign a new contract with the club.


Arsenal defender William Saliba again returned from loan at Marseille last season. Hence, many thought that he would be sold for the best price by the Gunners. The experts thought that Arteta would sell him as he was an Unai Emery signing. However, all the suggestions have turned out to be incorrect. The defender is now one of the first names on the team sheet.

He starts in the center-back position alongside Gabriel Magalhaes. Many have also praised Mikel Arteta for handling the situation of William Saliba this season. This also gives an indication that Arteta is ready to give chances to youngsters if they impress in their loan spells. However, it looks like William Saliba is also looking to repay the trust entrusted in him by the manager and the Arsenal fans


The Arsenal defender has also said that he is happy with the love from the fans. Hence, he is looking to repay the love and trust with his brilliant performances. The defender has also said that he loves it more when fans chant his name during the match. This statement also indicates that Saliba is now more than open to signing a new contract.

He further said,

The chant? Yeah, of course I’ve heard it [laughs]. I heard it since the beginning”. “I want to give them [the fans] back everyday I’m on the pitch. So, thank you for that.”

Arsenal manager also is optimistic that the defender will soon begin talks on his contract extension. However, he adds that the current focus is to win both the games before the break for the World Cup.

The Arsenal defender will also hope to include in the France national team for the World Cup. Hence, the negotiations on a new contract are likely to start during the January transfer window. Although, a number of reports have claimed that Gunners are in constant conversation with his agent.
