These 3 young Arsenal stars are ready to start…

Obviously, the ideal situation is that Arsenal strengthens in the transfer window this summer. This is what all fans want to see. However, unfortunately, we are not living in this ideal world at the moment, and the transfer market is bound to be negatively impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak.

That said, it’s not the end of the world if Arsenal struggles to sign players this summer because here are 3 young players that could step up to the mark…

3. William Saliba

William Saliba could end up being one of Arsenal’s most important players next season as he returns from his loan spell to North London, where he will make his first Premier League appearance.

With David Luiz rumoured to be on the way out and Sokratis Papastathopoulos ageing, Shkodran Mustafi needs a defensive partner to continue the immense progress under Mikel Arteta. While this could just as easily be Calum Chambers, Saliba has shown the potential in Ligue 1 to be a sure-starter for the Gunners.

He is a brute defender and his frame is frightening for someone of his age. Ageing at just 19 years old, he was one of Ligue 1’s best and most efficient defenders this season, so he is surely ready to start under Mikel Arteta.
