Arsenal have revealed that £27 million summer signing William Saliba is working his way back to fitness at London Colney despite being loaned back to Saint Etienne for the season.
The France under-21 international penned a long-term contract with the Gunners in the summer before he returned to France but has since undergone surgery to fix an adductor issue that bugged him all summer.
Arsenal shared a few pictures of the 18-year-old in training and taking a stroll with Robert Pires.
This time last month he was ruled out for six weeks so he’s presumably closing in on a return to action. It’s interesting that we’ve decided to supervise his recovery and something of a bonus that the player gets some extra time in London to prepare himself for his new life.
