'Give me strength': Some Arsenal fans fuming as reports suggest 20-year-old could leave
Arsenal fans have been reacting on social media to reports that Newcastle want to sign William Saliba on loan for next season.
Saliba, 20, is due to return to Arsenal this summer. After impressing with Nice in Ligue 1, many Gunners fans are hoping to see the £27m in action.
However, there remains an air of uncertainty over his immediate future with the club. Mikel Arteta will be tasked with making the decision on Saliba.
The Daily Mail has claimed that Newcastle are keeping tabs. Steve Bruce is eager to add new faces to his squad. Saliba, then, could be the ideal short-term signing.
And after the success Bruce had with Joe Willock, it’s easy to see why he has his eye on another Arsenal youngster.
But for Arsenal, it would represent showing yet more lack of trust in the Frenchman. Indeed, Saliba came back in pre-season last year and was soon farmed out, despite having high hopes.
Naturally, Gunners fans have been having their say about Saliba’s future on Twitter.
Arsenal fans fuming at rumours Saliba could join Newcastle
Over time, it’s become pretty clear that Arsenal fans want to see William Saliba get his chance. After all, the club did pay just shy of £30m for him.
Twitter, then, was awash with comments from Gunners fans. And in the main, it seems if a loan to Newcastle is signed off, it won’t be going down well in North London.
Here’s a look at what some of the Arsenal fans had to say about Saliba.
Arteta never given a chance … waste of talent … sound like Pep once he doesn’t get on with players he shut em down …!!!
