According to reports in France, St. Etienne defender William Saliba has agreed personal terms with the London side, fending off interest from Manchester United and Manchester City.
The 18-year-old powerful central-defender has reportedly signed a five-year deal but the clubs are yet to agree a fee. St.Etienne are rumoured to want around £25m for their young talent, who played 16 games in Ligue 1 last season.
