Squillaci completes move to Arsenal

Arsenal have signed a centre back that we have so desperately needed today. Sebastian Squillaci comes of 30 years of age and from Sevilla FC.  Their is no doubt that he is what we needed, and I am sure he will add some quality to our squad.

Squillaci has experience in the champions league, but he is still only 6 foot 1 and not the biggest player. I think Arsenal should have gone for the more young Sol Campbell that we need, rather than Squillaci although he still has experience and I am backing him to do well in the Premier League.

Wenger commented by saying,

“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.”
