Arsenal have been keeping tap on his progress and will move to have the teenager who is valued around £25m make their build up next season.
The Gunners have already initiated talks with Ituano over their their 17-year-old Brazilian forward, Gabriel Martinelli and will target Saliba having sent scouts to watch him during their 3-0 home win against Nice on Saturday.
