Europa League finalist Arsenal and St Étienne have reportedly reached a €30million agreement for the transfer of defender William Saliba.
According to RMC, both clubs are still in discussion over minor details, including bonuses and clauses.
Saliba has already agreed on personal terms with Arsenal, but he will return to St Étienne on loan until the end of the 2019/2020 season.
The 18-year-old was identified by Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, as a long-term replacement for Laurent Koscielny, who has a year left on his current deal at Emirates.
Emery is keen to strengthen his squad in this summer’s transfer window, after finishing in fifth place on the Premier League table last campaign.
