Kevin Campbell, a former Arsenal player, has praised William Saliba and compared him to Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.

Arsenal signed Saliba in 2019, but he has yet to appear in a competitive match. Instead, he has been loaned out on several occasions, the most recent of which was a resounding success.

The Frenchman performed admirably at Olympique Marseille, earning him a league-wide award for his efforts. He returns to Arsenal as a better player, having shown his worth in a few pre-season games.

The Gunners are expected to keep him and use him frequently this season. Campbell is confident in his abilities and refers to him as a Bentley if Van Dijk is a Rolls Royce.

Campbell tells football insider:

If Van Dijk is a Rolls Royce, Saliba is a Bentley. He is never flustered and his passing is a lot better than a lot of people give him credit for. He is smart, quick, strong, physical, powerful and does not make mistakes.

I think he needed that extra year at Marseille, if I am honest. I think that has really helped his confidence. Now when you see him play at Arsenal, and I know it is pre-season, he looks mature.
