Arsene Wenger has confirmed the signing of French centre-back Sebastien Squillaci from Sevilla.
“We needed a centre-back of quality and experience if possible, and at the right price – he was all of that. He is a real defender and is good in the one against one, good in the air, and can score goals on set-pieces as well. I believe he will be suited to the English game. He will train with us tomorrow morning, but will not be involved on Saturday. I made a bid on the day Sevilla played in the Champions League, so he did not play as he was waiting for the transfer.”
There will be more comment to follow shortly regarding Squillaci’s signing.
