Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made a late attempt to hijack an Arsenal transfer.
The 18-year-old was reportedly headed to Arsenal in a £27 million deal but Tottenham are seemingly trying to scupper that plan.
The news of Mauricio Pochettino's apparent interest broke on Friday and the agent of the Saint-Etienne defender swiftly posted a cryptic photo on Instagram.
His agent uploaded a picture of the 'at' symbol accompanied by an hour glass emoji.
It isn't immediately obvious what the gesture means but, considering it came after Tottenham's reported bid, it could well be linked.
This could be devastating for Arsenal if he ends up with the Lilywhites.
It's already been a dreadful summer for the Gunners in terms of transfers, with the 18-year-old Gabriel Martinelli representing their only signing so far.
And being pipped to Saliba, by Tottenham no less, would be a new low.
