Ever since Squillaci got to Arsenal in 2010 people started saying “What was Wenger thinking?”, and unfortunately they’re still saying the same thing now because in almost 2 season at the club the French defender only played a part in 23 games, and most of those weren’t important Premiership games but mostly cup matches.
Injuries played a very important part in Squillaci’s career since he joined Arsenal, being forced to deal with a very unlucky string of bad injuries which kept him away from the pitch for a long time.
Now he finds himself competing against a bunch of top class defenders which he cannot get out of the first team regardless of his efforts, so the best way is to move and make room for others.
Now Squillaci is closer than ever to a possible move away from the club with French side Monaco highly interested in his services. Monaco relegated last season and they’re bad spell isn’t over as they are now in the relegation area in League 2 as well, so they need reinforcements in order to keep hold of the second division for now.
