Arsenal are poised to beat Manchester United to the signing of a £26million Ligue 1 sensation, while Aston Villa are set to bid £14m for a Leeds ace, according to Thursday’s papers.

ARSENAL IN POLE POSITION TO SNATCH LIGUE 1 SENSATION

Arsenal are reportedly in pole position to beat Manchester United to French sensation William Saliba.

According to Le10 Sport, the Gunners are negotiating with Saint Etienne for the 18-year-old defender, who has also been a United target and was scouted by Watford and Southampton last season.

Saliba made 16 appearances for the Ligue 1 side in his breakthrough season and is regarded as one of the top young talents in French football.

Talks are said to be progressing well for the talented youngster, whose agent was in London earlier this week.

However, Arsenal could have a major issue in bringing in the France Under-19 international – a lack of funds.

Failure to secure Champions League football will see Unai Emery work with a reduced transfer kitty this summer, with the Daily Mirror claiming that the Gunners chief will only have £40million to spend  – plus any money that is made from outgoings.

And with Saint-Etienne placing a £26million price tag on the head of Saliba, while also wanting him back on loan for a season, Emery may decide to invest his limited budget elsewhere.
