The arrival of William Saliba has encouraged Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to list Rob Holding with 14 other players to be sold this summer.

Leeds have been handed a boost in their quest to sign Arsenal defender Rob Holding. Marcelo Bielsa is interested in luring the Englishman to Elland Road ahead of the new season.

Newly promoted Premier League side Leeds are hoping to build their defense line following a 16 year absence from top-flight football.

The championship winners are hoping to make a good account of themselves following their return to the Premier League.

Holding didn’t feature a lot for Arsenal last season. He played only 8 matches for the club. According to Daily Express, Arteta has listed Sokratis, Holding, and 13 other players on the club’s transfer list.

Arsenal are open to offers from other clubs for Holding. He has Premier League experience and would be a proper fit for a club like Leeds.

With the arrival of Gabriel Magalhaes, Holding will find himself even further below in the pecking order at the Emirates.

Holding made his debut against Liverpool in 2016 making a total of 78 appearances in all competitions across four seasons.
