Nice chief Julien Fournier insists there's no regrets missing out on William Saliba.

The Arsenal defender is currently on-loan with Olympique Marseille, having spent the second-half of last season with OCGN.

Nice tried to re-sign Saliba this summer, though Fournier says there's no regrets.

He told Nice-Matin: "William Saliba escaped us.

"But with hindsight, it's a bad thing for good. Because we could not have done other transfers if we had done so."
