Squillaci trying to be offloaded?

Squillaci trying to be offloaded?

Postby JordanTheGunner » Mon Aug 22, 2011 11:16 pm

Asrenal are trying to offload Sebastian Squillaci - but they cannot find a taker for the French flop.

The defender joined Arsenal from Sevilla for around £4m last summer but he has endured a torrid time in England since the move.

He has looked decidedly shaky when Arsene Wenger has decided to play him and it appears the Frenchman has run out of patience with him.

Squillaci has not even made the squad for Arsenal's first two Premier League games and although the official line from the club suggests he has a calf injury, it is understood Wenger has no long term-plans for the 31-year-old.

Laurent Koscielny's injury against Liverpool is likely to rule him out for two matches at least but Wenger hopes to have Johan Djourou back for their make-or-break clash with Udinese in the Champions League qualifier in Italy on Wednesday.

Squillaci is not due to be part of Wenger's plans in the immediate future and Arsenal are keen to sell him but no club has come forward with an enquiry as yet.

Offer him to Bolton as part of the Cahill deal. Or Blackburn they need some players.

Easy to say with hindsight, he looked like a decent signing at the time. A proven, experienced defender for a fairly low price. Unfortunately, it seems we got him a few years past his use by date, and I'll be glad to get shot of him now, if we can.

I agree. 90% of us thought he was a very good tidy signing...Not as if he was unknown either, he was very well known in World Football.

It doesn't work out all the time though.

I guess if Wenger does get rid of him its a sign he's going to bring in a new defender?

If he isnt then its a mad idea at the moment.

Worrying thing is Liverpool have offloaded there crap CB to Wolfsburg,they are after Cahill too.Its getting seriously frustrating how quickly other clubs are doing their transfer dealings, yet we have failed to sell the majority of players earmarked to leave the club this summer

So in other words, should have signed Cahill instead of Squillaci last summer? ;)

Yeah. Wenger signed Kos as first choice and Squi as back up. He should have signed Cahill as first choice and Kos as back up.

So he's apparently going to Bastia, if that falls through then Nice or Ajjacio will take him. Hard not to sell him now right?
