Sebastien Squillaci set for £6.5m Arsenal switch
Defender Sebastien Squillaci is set to complete his transfer to Arsenal today after Sevilla confirmed the two clubs have agreed a £6.5m fee for the 30-year-old.
The Frenchman travelled to London on Sunday night in order to undergo a medical with the Gunners on Monday and his La Liga employers informed fans of his imminent departure.
“Defender Sebastien Squillaci is tonight travelling to London to have a medical at Arsenal, the club he will be transferred to after an agreement was reached by the two clubs pending the results of the medical,” read a statement on Sevilla’s website.
The former Lyon centre-half will add some much-needed depth to the Gunners’ back-line following the summer departures of William Gallas, Sol Campbell and MikaÃƒÂ«l Silvestre.
