Sebastien Squillaci is on the verge of becoming an Arsenal player.

The 30-year-old has been courted by Wenger over the past week and after declining an initial bid from Arsenal for the centre-back, Sevilla have finally come to an agreement with the Gunners over the transfer of Squillaci.

The Frenchman is now due to have a medical at Arsenal’s training ground on Monday and will in all likelihood be unveiled as the club’s latest signing next week.

As Red London reported, Wenger hinted in his post-match interview yesterday that he had moved closer to securing the centre-back and the deal is now on the brink of completion after Sevilla released the following statement on their website just a few moments ago.

“Defender Sebastien Squillaci is tonight traveling 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.”
