Arsenal ‘have triggered contract option’ after Arteta announces £60M star wants to sign big deal
Arsenal have triggered the option to extend William Saliba’s contract by a further 12 months until June 2024 – it has been claimed
Arsenal knows that there is a lot of interest in the player – and also know that interest will grow over the next few months as he continues to impress on a weekly basis – so are now eager to make sure that he signs a new deal
And With his contract expiring in two years, the Premier League leaders want to tie him down for the foreseeable future as soon as possible and now Saliba has opened up and assured fans that Saliba wants to sign a new contract at the Emirates.
Now reports on GOAL have claimed Arsenal have triggered the option to extend William Saliba’s contract by a further 12 months, as talks on a new deal continue.
Arteta has recently assured Arsenal fans that Saliba wants to commit his future to Arsenal – He said: “We have a few of those that we are willing to extend their contracts. Willy is one of them.
“I think he’s shown in the months that he’s been with us the quality and the personality that he has to play at the level that we want.
“We are trying to do that [extend his contract] because we know he can be a really important part of our plans.”
When asked if the contract talks are progressing well, Arteta said: “I hope so. That is more to Edu and the board to be discussing with him, but what I know is the players is really happy and really wants to be here, and that is the main thing.”
Activating that clause in Saliba’s contract is a great decision by Arsenal as it will give the club some more time to get his long-term stay sorted.
We would be shocked to see him NOT sign a new deal – he fully deserves it
