Squillaci likely to leave Arsenal on a free transfer
Sebastien Squillaci is currently negotiating with Arsenal to terminate his contract by mutual agreement, with several French top-flight clubs showing keen interest in the 31-year-old defender.
Squillaci, whose contract expires next summer, moved to Emirates Stadium on a three-year deal in 2010 was deemed surplus to manager Arsene Wenger’s plans last summer but a permanent move never came to fruition despite tentative interest from AS Monaco.
Newly-promoted Ligue 1 side SC Bastia are favourites to land Squillaci due to the Frenchman’s Corsican links, while Stade Brest have also been linked.
Ex-Sevilla centre back Squillaci has made just 23 appearances since arriving from Spain in 2010.
