William Saliba of France reacts as he is substituted with an injury during the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup group E match between Mali and France at Gdynia Stadium on May 31, 2019 in Gdynia,...

William Saliba will be arriving at Arsenal in the summer of 2020.

If Sunday's performance against Lyon is anything to go by, Arsenal have a real talent on their hands.

William Saliba played a blinder as Saint Etienne beat the Ligue 1 outfit 1-0 last night.

The 18-year-old centre-back, who officially signed for Arsenal in a £27 million deal during the summer, was charged with the task of keeping Moussa Dembele quiet - a job he performed excellently.

The former Celtic hitman had six goals in seven starts going into last night's clash, but the teenage powerhouse kept him on a short leash throughout.

 

It was a fabulous individual display from the Arsenal-owned star and here's how fans of the North London club reacted on Twitter:

David Luiz hadn't enjoyed a brilliant start to life at Arsenal, but the Brazilian centre-back has looked better in recent games and scored the winner on Sunday as Unai Emery's side beat Bournemouth 1-0.

Originally, the decision to sign Luiz instead of keeping Saliba in North London was questioned by Arsenal supporters, such was the former Chelsea man's trying start, but Luiz is slowly adapting.
