Arteta Has A Second Chance To Sign Midfielder As Pundit Stakes A Claim On Saliba's Future

Hello, Gunner. Here are the most recent Arsenal transfer updates.

William Saliba has taken the PL by storm. Last season, while on loan at Marseille, the 21-year-old dominated Ligue 1. Critics questioned whether he could bring his brilliance to the Premier League, but Saliba has been impressive in his first two games.

Paul Brown believes Arteta sees him as a cog in his project and would demonstrate that with a new lucrative contract. "To put him at centre-back and move Ben White to right back was quite a big vote of confidence, so I think we can assume that Arsenal do see a big future for Saliba and would like him to sign a long-term contract," said Paul Brown to GMS.

Meanwhile, according to HITC, Juventus has offered Arthur Melo to Arsenal on a loan deal with a €35-38 million buyout option. This is interesting because Arsenal were desperate to sign the Brazilian in the January transfer window, but Juventus blocked the deal at the last minute.

"The Bianconeri are willing to send the 26-year-old on loan to Arsenal, but they want the Gunners to pay all of his wages," says HITC.

The Gunners are still looking for a midfielder, just as they were in January. We'll have to wait and see if Juventus' offer entices them.
