Arsenal fans react as William Saliba joins Ligue 1 outfit Nice on loan

Arsenal talent William Saliba has headed out of the Emirates Stadium to sign for Nice on loan.

According to the club’s official website, the talented performer is set to join the Ligue 1 outfit until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Saliba checked in during the summer of 2019 for £27 million and was immediately loaned back to Saint-Etienne.

He made 36 appearances for the French outfit and last season helped them to reach the Coupe De France Final.

Some supporters remain disgruntled that he hasn’t been given a chance to shine during the current campaign.

Gabriel’s arrival from Lille and the form of Rob Holding has seen him out of the picture at the Emirates Stadium.

Pablo Mari, David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi are all also ahead of him in the pecking order.

Following the news that he has gone out on loan, supporters have taken to Twitter to discuss his temporary departure.

Saliba earns £40,000-a-week at Arsenal and it does seem a decent move for him to go on loan.

The hope will be that he returns in a better position to challenge for a place ahead of next season.

Here is what supporters are saying about Saliba’s move.
