Mikel Arteta is not just focused on the players on his current squad, but also on the many that left on loan and that could be back in a near future.
One of them is Willian Saliba, a 20-year-old defender who signed for Arsenal last season from Saint-Etienne in a deal worth 30 million euros.
During his first and only season for the 'Gunners', the French defender played less than 10 games combining his appearances for the first team, U21's and U23's. That's why he went on loan to Olympique Marseille.
In Ligue 1, he is having some great performances and Arsenal is following his development. According to Fabrizio Romano, the English side is very pleased with his form and already contacted the defender to let him know they want him back next season.
