Agbonlahor warns Arsenal that Manchester City will come for their player

Gabby Agbonlahor has warned Arsenal about handing a new deal to William Saliba.

The defender has been solid in the league this season after returning from several loan spells away from the club.

He is one reason the Gunners have won 7 of their 8 league games so far.

He makes defending easy, and his long-term future must be at the Emirates.

However, the club has not offered him a new long-term deal despite his current one running out soon.

Agbonlahor believes they must do so quickly, and he says they need to pay him what he wants.

This is because the likes of Manchester City will circle to poach him from London.

The ex-striker tells Football Insider:

“He’s going to be the most sought-after centre-half in the world.

“He’s comfortable on the ball, he’s quick, he’s strong, he’s good in the air and he can score a goal. He’s a player that Arsenal really need to keep a hold of.

“The likes of Chelsea, Man United, even Man City would love to have him.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Saliba is one man we cannot lose, and the defender is already showing us why he is a key player for this team.

He joined us in 2019 because we saw the potential in him, and now is the time for us to reap the rewards.

Handing him a new deal is a given. We just have to do it faster than we are doing now.

    1. I think Arsenal have an option of an extension of one more year on the contract of Saliba, so the notion that it’s running out soon is not true. Arteta has also talked about extension of Martinelli, Saka and Saliba’s contracts so I have no doubt our core players will be with Arsenal for the foreseeable future. long gone are the says when we needed to sell to our rivals season in season out.

  1. We have an option of one year on the current deal and the club are talking to him about an extension

  2. We have the option of extending the contracts of Saliba, Martinelli and Saka for another year as Mikey says above, which makes negotiations far less urgent.

  3. The fact that the talks are stalling makes me nervous. If we lose one of the three players we would have taken 10 steps backwards on the renewal projects, we might as well forget about the rebuild as more would leave because they would see us as less ambitious.

  4. I’m not an arsenal fan im stoke fan..seen a couple of arsenal games and this lad is solid..he’s the kind of defender you’ve missed over the last 5 years …get him signed on a 5 year deal otherwise you’ll be without him next season …

  5. The problem any daft and half brainless so called pundit has , even when they sat something half sensible as GA has said here,is that you are derided, , rightly in his case, as a half wit and, in order to get publicity for yourself, you need to say more an more increasingly daft things . Even if, at times, you do not actually believe what you say.

    GA has become a “clown” and a person of “fun”. It might make him a living but at what a cost to his reputation!!

  6. Through Which Opening Does Your Audacity Allow You To Make an Unsolicited Opinion About a Matter That Does Not Involve You

  7. Arsenal has stopped selling vital players to rival clubs like before big credit to Mikel i believe Saliba is now happy at the club and will stay
