Squillaci Completes Move to Emirates Stadium

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has today confirmed the signing of French centre-back Sebastien Squillaci from Sevilla.

The Spanish club had announced at the weekend that a £6.5 million deal had been agreed between the clubs.

The 30-year-old will not be available for the weekend game against Blackburn Rovers but he will be eligible for the Champions League campaign.

His new manager is in no doubt that the Gunners have acquired a fine player who will suit the Premier League.

"We needed a centre-back of quality and experience if possible, and at the right price - he was all of that," Wenger told reporters.

"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."
