With David Luiz’s contract expiring, we take a look at what these two players might benefit from the 33-year-old departure from Arsenal.
Football.London Arsenal’s technical director Edu has reportedly not held contract talks with Luiz, although the Brazilian is only in June leave his deal.
The centre-back has played in 14 Premier League games this season, starting 12 of them.
However, William Saliba and Pablo Mari could be two players who could benefit from the 33-year-old’s departure.
With Luiz gone, both could see more involvement in Mikel Arteta’s plans.

Saliba – gaining valuable experience in France
At just 19 years old, Saliba was able to play a regular season in Europe’s top leagues is an invaluable experience.
The Frenchman has already played nine games in Ligue 1 for Nice, all for the full 90 minutes.
France kept just one clean sheet twice When Saliba plays, it should never be a reflection of his ability or potential.
Given that Nice boss Adrian Ursey is confident enough to play the young defender frequently, the Frenchman could well be an obvious replacement for Arteta if Luiz leaves.

Mali – Spaniards on the sidelines
Mari missed 24 games for the Gunners last season due to injury. ankle injurywhich also appears to have affected his participation this season.
The Spaniard has only played three games in the Premier League so far this season.
These came in quick succession, against Chelsea, Brighton and West Brom.
Mali has made almost as many appearances in the Europa League as he has in the Premier League.
The 27-year-old has two quick encounters with Dundalk and Vienna, both of which were easy wins for the Gunners.
It seems that aside from Chelsea, the Spaniard is only playing against opponents that Arteta expects to beat.
However, like Saliba, Mali could benefit from Luiz’s departure from north London.
That certainly means Mari will at least see a slight increase in his minutes at Arsenal.
