“I’m at home here” Key man insists he is happy to wear the Arsenal shirt

William Saliba has been an Arsenal player since 2019, but he only just started playing for the club this season.

The French defender is one of the club’s finest players, he was on loan between 2019 and this summer.

After impressing at Olympique Marseille in the last campaign, he earned a recall from Mikel Arteta who made him a starter straightaway at the Emirates.

The defender has been in stunning form since he returned to the Emirates and they consider him one of the first names on the team sheet now.

But does he feel happy to be a part of the squad in North London? He says he does, telling Sky Sports as quoted by The Daily Mail:

 ‘I’m at home here. I like London, I like the club, I like everything. I feel at home here.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Saliba has been one of our most important players this season and it has been great to have him in the squad.

He is clearly enjoying himself at the Emirates, and it is no surprise that he says he feels at home.

As long as he keeps feeling this good at the club, we expect him to remain a good player.

  1. It wasn’t a “recall”, it was part of a plan.

    One little-known thing about William is that his English was quite poor a year ago and it’s essential for PL play. That’s why the club wanted him to go on loan to a Championship club (private tutors are no substitute for hearing all those regional accents!). But he decided to go to France and take on English tutoring and it seems to have worked out.

    Another is that he was an Arsenal fan as a kid, so all in all, it’s not really surprising that he’s happy to be here.

  2. A Championship loan would have been a waste of a year, he was far above that level, and perhaps would not have improved as much playing against that level of competition.

    The French league isn’t the PL, but it is still above Championship level.

  3. Let’s hope he signs a new deal ,because everything leading up to this point seems to be pointing at the opposite.
    Would hate to see a situation next summer where there is still nothing concrete and we are once again left to give away a player or get held to ransom ,balls in his court and the better he plays the more he is going to be worth ,bigger clubs will come circling and he could get his head turned .
    Same applies to saka .

    1. Can’t see that happening this time Dk – both players have been permanent players this season, unlike the players you are talking about.

      I keep reading that Saliba and Saka are happy playing for the club they have supported since childhood.
      Also that new contracts are on the table and progressing well.

      Let’s just listen to what the two players are saying and wait for the official announcement.

  4. William Saliba is the kind of defender we Arsenal fans have been longing for for years since Colo Toure & Sol Campbell left the club. My only worry is if hegets injured. I hope he will remain fit the whole season. If he does, the vlub will be gor sure a contender for the league title keeping in mind that our attackers continue scoring goals.
    ONCE A GUNNER; ALWAYS A GUNNER!
