Why are Arsenal letting him go on loan again?
Saliba intended to fight for a spot this time, but with Arsenal trying to sign Brighton & Hove Albion center-back Ben Whiteit was decided that he should hit the road again.
Saliba will immediately enter the fight for the starting position at the Velodrome Stadium under the leadership of head coach Jorge Sampaoli, whose men will play Europa League football in 2021–2022.
Does he have a future at Arsenal?
Saliba’s contract runs until 2024 and remains part of the club’s long-term thinking.
It should be noted that Saliba was acquired during the previous government and executive regime.
How did Saliba perform in France last season?
As part of the Nice team, which was significantly inferior in terms of performance in the previous campaign, Saliba impressed the player who was at the center of Barcelona’s defense, Jean-Clair Todibo.
He made an immediate impact on the French Riviera, winning Nice Player of the Month in January.
Saliba missed just two games on loan for Nice.
