Arsenal will reportedly meet with Saint-Etienne on Tuesday to discuss a potential move for William Saliba.
The 18-year-old, who has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, made 16 Ligue 1 appearances for his French club during the 2018-19 campaign.
Saliba only recently agreed a new four-year contract with Les Verts but his future has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks.
According to French journalist Manu Lonjon, Arsenal will hold discussions with Saint-Etienne on Tuesday with the view to potentially closing a deal for the teenage centre-back.
ASSE are said to be looking for a £27m transfer fee for Saliba, while they would want the France Under-20 international to return to the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on loan for the 2019-20 campaign.body check tags ::
