William Saliba has officially signed for Arsenal and will be loaned back to St Etienne for the next season and while it is great for the future, what about the present?
In 12 months time it will be great to see the teenager at the club, he is apparently very talented and with the right development and man-management could be in the core of our defence for a decade or more.
So, without a doubt, his signing is very much welcomed and I congratulate the club for this piece of business.
William will spend a season back on loan at @ASSEofficiel before joining our squad next summer.

But what about right now, we need a defender for the next 12 months because if we do not sort our defence out then we will be in an even worse situation than we are now.
We will not qualify for the Champions League and that means no decent transfer budget, in fact, it would probably be even lower because the Saliba money would be due.
Arsenal needs a central defender this season especially now that we have lost Laurent Koscielny because what we have remaining is not up to scratch and it will cost us dearly if we do not do something about it.
Today has been a good day for sure, two new signings but the nature of these signings means that Dani Ceballos and William Saliba may never ever play together, think about that.
