Video: William Saliba is the man to build the team around

Arsenal agreed a deal to sign William Saliba last summer, and he looks like the perfect player to build the team around moving forwards.

The recently-turned 19 year-old has it all. Not only is he fast, agile and quick-thinking in defence, but will be key in switching our stance from defence to attack, and has a long-ball pass that can match even the best.

Saliba and David Luiz both pinging balls from deep positions next season is going to put teams under immense pressure not to attack in large numbers, and will cause all sorts of trouble to our rivals.

Our club really looks to have landed a bargain by moving so quickly to land Saliba, and I would not be surprised to see him handed the captain’s armband in the coming years, as he looks mature beyond his years, and appears to have a real influence on those around him.

Will Saliba be able to hit the ground running in the Premier League? Is Luiz the perfect partner to help him meet his full potential in training and on the pitch?

    Could well turn out to be our best CB since Sol Campbel l.

      Kos apart, you could say our ONLY CB since Campbell, who was any real use. I never rated Merts at all, far too slow, which was always an accident waiting to happen in our speedy Prem, unlike in Germany. Nor Gallas that much and they were the best, Kos apart, since Campbell, but leagues below him in ability. Since The Invincibles, the CB ‘s have been disastrous, taken overall. A decade plus of mediocre or complete rubbish, as now. I don’t count Saliba, as he has not yet played for us, but am as hopeful as you Grandad on him!

      IMO, Wengers total inability to put the defence right over so very long a period was his worst failure by far.
