Social media was abuzz on Tuesday night as William Saliba made a composed debut in our friendly victory at MK Dons.
Many fans were impressed with what they saw - but what are Mikel Arteta’s early impressions of our teenage centre back?
“He's been training really hard,” our head coach said. “He stayed here in London to do a better preparation and you can tell that he looks ready.
“Obviously there are a lot of things that are new for him and he will need to adapt but certainly he has the right qualities for this football club and as well the right attitude to keep improving and showing the player he can be for our future.”
