'I'd be happy with that': Some fans of English club react as 'outstanding' Arsenal man is linked
Newcastle United fans have been having their say on social media after reports this weekend linked them with Arsenal’s William Saliba.
The Frenchman is set to return from Nice and faces an uncertain future once again, in the short-term at least. Mikel Arteta must decided whether he wants to use Saliba, or, send him on loan once more.
The Daily Mail has claimed that Newcastle are keen. The Magpies are said to be interested, with a move for Celtic’s Kristoffer Ajer looking less likely.
Saliba will want to prove himself at Premier League level. He did well in Ligue 1 last season with Nice. However, he knows Mikel Arteta has cast him aside before. Therefore, a move to Newcastle could be of interest.
The Toon Army have had good recent experience with Arsenal loanees. Joe Willock was hugely impressive last season, scoring 8 in 14.
Newcastle fans discuss William Saliba
Newcastle fans are hoping the club has a big summer. Of course, with Mike Ashley still in charge, the Toon Army aren’t massively hopeful.
So, while the mention of Saliba seems to have gone down well with some fans, it’s safe to say some others see it is another short-term option.
Twitter was full of comments from Newcastle fans discussing the potential signing of Saliba. Here, then, is a look at some supporters had to say.
I’d be happy with that. He’s outstanding.

In other words: now we know Delia is in for Ajer, we don’t want to compete with her 🙄🙄

If my memory serves me correct the last two Arsenal players to come to the Toon we’re Willock and Hayden, so bring it on!

I would prefer Ajer since he would be a permanent deal. That is what we need! A long time solution. Saliba on loan would just be a short time fix.
We need consistency.
