And with the Gunners set to miss out on the Champions League spots, Saliba confirmed his desire to remain in Marseille and compete in Europe.
"I want to come back and play the Champions League," said Saliba following Marseille's 4-0 win over Strasbourg on the final day of the season.
"I have never played in it and I want to discover it here."
Saliba also won the Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year award and, when receiving his award, said he was unsure whether he would be able to return.
He said: "It's an honour, a source of pride, I dedicate this trophy to my team-mates, my club and the supporters.
"Did I play my last match with Marseille? I don't know. The future will tell us.
