If Arsenal had a £100 Million plus transfer budget spending close to £30 Million on a teenager then loaning him back for a year is probably acceptable business.

But what if you have a limited budget and you need defensive cover right now?

Under those circumstances, is it still sensible for Arsenal to spend a significant portion of their limited budget on a player they cannot use for a year?

No. We need players for the coming season especially in CB position. If our funding is as limited as reported then it shouldn't even be a consideration with a fee that high.

No, absolutely not. Why pay that much for a young defender and then hand him back for a season? If this deal is actually true  this young fella needs to join up with the team ASAP and bed in, what he doesn't need is to go back to a crappy French team where he's not going to learn anything.

We cant ignore the fact that we probably will take time to recover and be back to being a consistent top 4. As such competing for top class youngsters become a key component of that. Ideally, Arsenal would have wanted Saliba now but keeping him in the long term is an advantage. We still need though to find a plug even if its short term
