The French centre-back enjoyed a successful debut for Marseille, who secured a dramatic 3-2 win away to Montpellier.

Saliba, who joined Arsenal for £27 million two years ago but hasn’t made a single competitive appearance, seemed to impress fans of the North London club.

The former Saint-Etienne powerhouse also displayed his attacking qualities with a number of forays into enemy territory from deep.
