After two incredible loan spells with Nice and Marseille, many believe that this could be William Saliba’s breakout season at Arsenal.

Signed for £30m back in 2019, the French centre-back is yet to make his Gunners debut, but after shining out on loan, he’s back at the Emirates and ready to make an impact.

A number of signs point towards Saliba getting a real run in the team this term. He’s been a key player in pre-season, he’s earned praise from Mikel Arteta, and his competition, Gabriel Magalhaes, may be leaving the club.

Indeed, Gabriel has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus, and if the Brazilian departs, one would imagine that Saliba would immediately be promoted to be one of Arteta’s first-choice centre-halves.

However, according to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal may have another plan in mind.

The journalist claimed earlier this week that Pau Torres could be an option for Arsenal if Gabriel is sold, and we have to imagine that Saliba won’t be best pleased with the idea of Torres arriving.

“Keep an eye on the centre-back domino with Pau Torres. He’s always been on the list of Chelsea, not as a priority, but he’s been on the list. Let’s see what happens with Juventus, they are now negotiating with Bremer, and let’s see what happens with Arsenal and Pau Torres in case a top club comes in for Gabriel, this could be an option for Arsenal,” Romano said on the Here We Go Podcast.

Of course, adding depth and competition to your backline is a necessity if you’re going to challenge at the top level, but a player like Torres coming in would surely spell bad news for Saliba and his hopes of being the Gunners’ main man this term.

Regularly touted as a £50m centre-half, the Spain international surely wouldn’t be arriving in north London to play second-fiddle to anyone, and that may well condemn Saliba to a season of biding his time and sitting on the bench.

Saliba has often intimated that he’s not been happy with his treatment and situation at Arsenal, and if Torres is signed this summer, he’d have every right to once again air his frustrations.
