In as much as Mikel Arteta craves for quality profiles in his squad-depth, we can argue that he himself set the fire that currently consumes his squad prior to the start of this season. A few of the players that he considered unwanted and defectors of his project have been delivering impressively on the pitch throughout their loan spells in their respective clubs. That is to mention both William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi who play for Marseille.
The two players were signed by the previous manager Unai Emery but have not found fortune under the management of Mikel Arteta. However, since Guendouzi signed a deal with the Ligue 1 club, the Frenchman has managed two goals plus four assists that sums up to six goal-involvements this season.
On the other hand, the 20-years old Saliba has been outstanding in the central defense of Marseille. And like Guendouzi, Saliba is a regular player at the French club and has garnered a total of 14 clean sheets including last Saturday's. The defender is yet to keep any clean sheet in the premier league not because he is not capable but because he has never gotten any single chance from Mikel Arteta
If the Gunners' boss can put away the preconceived differences with this duo, they can be undeniably instrumental for the success of the club come next season. Should the two be left to stay in the squad at the end of their loan spells?
