Comparison of William Saliba’s stats in Nice with Arsenal’s current CB options

After leaving Arsenal to join Nice on loan in January, William Saliba shines again in Ligue 1.

Arsenal have high hopes for Saliba, but the center-back failed to convince Mikel Arteta that he is ready for life in the Premier League and has been excluded from the Gunners’ competitive sides for the first half of the 2020 season – 21 before moving to Pleasant.

The 19-year-old was named Nice’s Player of the Month for January, and we’ve compared his Ligue 1 stats to the corresponding Premier League numbers of Arteta’s current center-back options: Gabriel Magalhaes, David Luiz and Rob Holding. Pablo Mari was sent off for lack of minutes.
