Arsenal are reportedly keen to recall young defender William Saliba from his loan spell at Saint Etienne and the fans are excited about this devision.

According to The Boot Room, the Arsenal fans are delighted with the news that William Saliba could return to the club earlier than expected though this is still subject to an agreement with French Ligue 1 outfit Saint Etienne.

Arsenal and Saint Etienne had agreed that William Saliba will spend the whole of this season on loan with the French top flight club after the Gunners signed the player for a fee of around £27m.

William Saliba broke into the first team at Saint Etienne last season and his impressive outings for the club attracted the interest of many clubs including North London giants Arsenal.

The young Frenchman signed for Arsenal in the summer after they saw off rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the battle for his signature.

Arsenal have been far from convincing in the Premier League this season with the team languishing in 12th spot and six points from the relegation zone after 20 games mainly due to their poor defensive record and new manager Mikel Arteta believes William Saliba will improve the team defensively if he returns from loan earlier than expected.
