The exciting young defender joined Arsenal for £ 27million in 2019 but has yet to play one competitive game for the Gunners.
The 20-year-old spent last season on loan in France with Nice, where he made a big impression.
The loan deal was a success for the young defender and many Arsenal fans think Saliba is finally ready to make his debut for the north London club.
However, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has insisted that he will make a decision about him during pre-season training.
The center-back, who completed a total of 22 missions last summer, is also wanted by the French club Marseille.

Saliba will have the necessary presence in the Premier League while Arsenal will also be able to keep a close eye on their progress.
Newcastle are also keen to sign Arsenal’s Joe Willock on a permanent basis. The midfielder is waiting to see if Arsenal offer him a new deal or sell him for £ 20m.
