EPL Backup needed – Neville names player Arsenal must sign. Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has told Arsenal to sign an able backup for centre-back William Saliba before the start of next season.
Saliba, who joined Arsenal in 2019, had to wait until the 2022-23 campaign to make his senior debut for the Gunners after three loan spells to Ligue 1 teams.
He became a key member of Mikel Arteta’s team, helping the north Londoners to challenge for the Premier title this season.
However, the 22-year-old suffered a setback after a back injury in March, forcing him to miss eight consecutive games.
Arsenal lost the grip on the EPL title during Saliba’s absence, going winless in four games before their back-to-back victory over Chelsea and Newcastle United.
And Neville feels that as a club that would be playing in the Champions League next season, the Gunners should sign more top players.
“It’s a big summer coming up at Arsenal with the CL next season. They haven’t looked the same without Saliba! Defensive backup needed,” he tweeted.
