France vs Russia for Squillaci’s signature.

One of Arsenal’s central defenders, Sebastien Squillaci might be in for a transfer away from the club in January. The €4 million rated central defender now has quite a few teams trailing him, and given that he can’t find his place in Arsenal’s team anyhow, he’s probable to leave in January.

According to some reports in Spain, Espanyol was offered a chance to buy the lad but they considered him to be too expensive for their possibilities, and now Squillaci is likely to join a French club.

Russian mega-rich club Anzhi Makhachkala are also in the chase for the defender and they currently seem like favourites given their financial power.

Bordeaux is also one of the possible destinations for Squillaci, who at 31-years-old can still play at a very high level having completely recovered from the injury he suffered at Arsenal.
