Squillaci jets in for Arsenal switch

Sebastien Squillaci is on his way to the rip-roaring red machine that is the mighty Arsenal, according to reports. AW has successfully bid Sevilla five mil for the central defender and he will become our third signing of the summer following the acquistion of  Laurent Koscielny and Maroane Chamakh.
It appears that France international Squillaci has flown to London tonight in preparation for a medical tomorrow morning at the Arsenal with a view to agreeing a three-year switch. The Spanish club’s website is reported to have announced the move is a done deal.
Squillaci is said to have been withdrawn from the Sevilla squad that faced Braga in the first leg of the Champions League play-off tie on Wednesday. Apparently as the Spanish club did not want to wreck a deal by making him cup-tied in Europe.
AW has long said that we are in need of back-up in the heart of our defence after the departures of William Gallas, Sol Campbell, Philippe Senderos and Mikael Silvestre.
Johan Djourou and Alex Song (who looked a natural against Blackpool y’day it has to be said) can partner either TV or Koscielny but we need cover without a doubt.
