William Saliba is reportedly frustrated by his current situation at Arsenal.

Despite his slow start to life as an Arsenal player, Arteta is happy with what he's seen from Saliba, saying: "He's in a much better place.
"He's feeling a lot more confident around the place, his language is improving and he's starting to understand much better what we're doing physically.
