William Saliba: Tottenham in talks for Saint-Etienne defender

William Saliba: Tottenham in talks for Saint-Etienne defender

The club have been tracking William Saliba in recent weeks, but the Saint-Etienne stopper could join Tottenham instead.

And the deal agreed would have allowed them to secure the France under-20 international's signature but also concentrate the bulk of their funds on players to immediately improve their squad, with Bondy-born Saliba only arriving in 12 months' time.

Bouhafsi claims that any deal, for Spurs or Arsenal, would see him return to Etienne on loan for next season.

The main obstacle for Arsenal would be Champions League football, both Juve and Spurs can offer that, we cannot and if all three clubs were to meet his personal demands then lack of participation in Europe's premier competition would put us at a severe disadvantage.

The two clubs are scheduled to hold a meeting on Saturday as Tottenham look to spoil Arsenal's plans to land the young talent.

"Negotiations between Arsenal, Saint Etienne and Saliba were in their very final stages - much of it already in the hands of lawyers to agree wording of contracts etc - but Tottenham have reignited their interest and are now pushing hard to get the deal completed", Ornstein wrote. So, should they be spending more than €30m on a teenage defender who will go back out on loan?

Toby Alderweireld's future with Spurs is unknown with AS Roma reportedly eyeing up a move for the Belgian.

Manchester United have also been linked with the Benfica centre-back, who has a release clause of £54m.
