Why William Saliba chose to sign for Arsenal instead of Tottenham

William Saliba is poised to sign for Arsenal, despite Tottenham making a late effort to hijack the deal.
Arsenal have been attempting to find a suitable resolution with Saint-Etienne all summer long, but had struggled to reach a compromise with the French club.
Spurs made a move for the teenage centre-half over the weekend, but the player has reportedly decided his long-term future lies in the red half of north London.
Arsenal will now pay an initial ?33m (29.8m) fee plus a further ?7m (6.3m) in add-ons and will loan Saliba back to Saint-Etienne next season with the player keen to continue his development in Ligue 1.
