Sources: Arsenal set to win €25m Saliba race

William Saliba is set to join Arsenal from Saint-Etienne.

Arsenal are poised to make France under-19 defender William Saliba their first signing of the summer in a €25 million deal, sources have told ESPN FC.

Arsenal and Saint-Etienne have almost reached an agreement for the promising 18-year-old, who is tall, quick, strong and excellent on the ball.

- When does the transfer window close?

Saliba, who fits with Arsenal's new recruitment strategy of young, promising players like Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi, will stay on loan at Saint-Etienne next season in an effort to continue his development and play regular first-team football.

Beaten Europa League finalists Arsenal have beaten a number of rivals to the signing of Saliba, including Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain.
