Real Madrid target Arsenal’s on-loan defender William Saliba to “find the next Varane”

08 Nov 2019

Real Madrid may look to sign Arsenal defender William Saliba as a long-term replacement for Raphael Varane, claim reports.

The 18-year-old was signed by the Gunners this summer in a €30m deal from Saint-Etienne, whom they immediately loaned him back to on a season-long loan deal.

This apparently comes under the instruction of Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane, who has identified his fellow Frenchman Saliba alongside two other young French defenders as potential targets.

Two other teenagers, Benoit Badiashile and Boubacar Kamara – of Monaco and Marseille respectively – are also said to make up the shortlist compiled by Zidane.
