Saint-Etienne coach Pierre blasted Arsenal's treatment of Saliba and expressed dissatisfaction with the failure to get him on loan.
In an interview with "Team Daily", Pierre said: "A good player like Saliba has not even entered the Europa League list. What is the logic?"
"He is very eager to join us. The club is like a family and a friend to him. He will adapt to the team very quickly. We meet the conditions for renting Saliba, which could have been done."
