The Gunners will pay a fee of around £26 million to the French club to sign the 18-year-old.

William Saliba featured 16 times during his debut Ligue 1 campaign after breaking into the first-team in late September.

A season-long loan back to St Etienne could therefore suit all parties.

However, St Etienne president Roland Romeyer has the player in mind for another year at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

If Arsenal do loan the teenager back to St Etienne it could give them extra flexibility in the transfer market this summer.
