According to reports from the Associated Press’s Arsenal and team reporter Mann Bryans, Arsenal are considering the possibility of renting Saliba to the English Championship team.
Saliba transferred to Arsenal in the summer of 2019 and was then loaned to Saint-Etienne. The French centre-back had previously trained with Arsenal.
Both Rennes and Saint-Etienne had rumors with Saliba before the transfer window closed. They were rumored to be on loan with Saliba, but the transfer failed to happen.
Mann-Bryans said that Arsenal are considering the possibility of renting Saliba to a Champions League team in the next few days. Although Saliba's transfer to Saint-Etienne has failed, Arsenal feel that the players need to get a season of stable playing time.
Before October 16, Premier League teams can make transfer transactions with the Premier League, League One and League Two teams, but transfers between Premier League teams are not possible.
