Arsenal President Pablo Longoria has expressed openly his desire to keep the 21-year-old.

Saliba has admitted that it would be a shame to leave Arsenal without having played a first-team game.

The lifting of financial constraints has also boosted their chances of completing the marquee signing. A bid could compel Arteta to fulfil his promise of a larger role.
