Spurs rival Arsenal for Saint-Etienne defender William Saliba

Tottenham are set to land Saliba ahead of Arsenal

As such there is set to be a meeting on Saturday that could finalise Saliba's move to Spurs instead.

He's come through the youth ranks at the club and made a comfortable step up to the first-team, where he cemented his spot in the XI by the end of the season in the league matches.

'I think he has everything needed to become a good player, much like Kurt Zouma, who I signed'.

As such, the potential showcased by the stopper to this point in his fledgling career has unsurprisingly seen Saliba added to the respective wishlists of a number of clubs around Europe.

Arsenal had delved deep in negotiations for the €30m rated defender but Saint-Étienne were unable to accept the payment structure suggested by Arsenal.

In fact, Saliba has reportedly been identified as the north Londoners" "top' transfer target this summer.

He added the ultimate nomination still depended on conversations with his father and Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo. The younger Bolsonaro turned 35 - the minimum age for ambassadors - just before his father announced his plans.

However, Tottenham have made a last-ditch attempt to secure the services of the France Under-20 global by offering a marginally better deal.

As such, it appeared just a matter of time before Saliba's move to the Emirates was set to be confirmed.

William Saliba is subject to a late offer from Tottenham Hotspur as the club attempts to outbid their arch nemesis Arsenal for securing the services of the Saint Etienne defender.

Saliba, a France Under-20 global, joined Saint-Etienne in 2016 and is one of the game's most highly-rated young centre-backs.

Saliba himself had already agreed a 5-year contract with The Gunners, in a deal that would have seen the Frenchman return to ASSE on loan for the 2019/20 campaign.
