(Video) Arsenal loanee labeled as ‘Mbappe of defenders’ after filthy skill against Monaco


Things seem to be going well for Arsenal recently after they drew to rivals Chelsea and beat Bournemouth 2-1 in the FA Cup 4th round clash.

Recent results has seen positive energy being spread among the fanbase and a belief that Mikel Arteta might be the right man for the club.

One of the known fan accounts on Twitter seems to have found the ‘Mbappe of defenders’ in their loan player William Saliba after his showcase of brilliant skill in a match against Monaco where he made a return from injury.

Saliba is an 18-year-old french centre-back currently at a loan playing for Saint-Étienne.

The player has the ability to switch to the right-back position, one of the reasons Arsenal signed him in the first place and were rumored to call him back to the club to strengthen their defensive lineup.

Calling him the Mbappe of centre-backs might be a huge statement but there is no denying that Saliba could be one for the future.

With the sudden emergence of very young and hard-working talent in the Arsenal squad such as Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, and Reiss Nelson to name a few, it is natural for Arsenal fans to be excited for another one of their young talents.
