Villa Eye Out-of-Favour Defender Senderos

Senderos

Aston Villa could make a move this January for Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos. The player is currently spending a season long loan at AC Milan, but Martin O’Neill is ready to make an offer to the Gunners to take the Swiss international off of their hands.

Senderos had struggled in his few years at Arsenal previously, and is now hoping to resurrect his career in Serie A. It is understood that AC Milan have no intention of keeping the Swiss defender at the club after his loan has ended though, and he will be returning to Arsenal.

The 23-year-old stopper was a surprise swoop for the Rossoneri whenthey looked to strengthen their back line for a Scudetto push in August, Senderos though, has only managed to play one game under Carlo Anceletti, mainly due to conitinuous injury problems.

Last season, Senderos was blamed for some slacking marking that allowed Liverpool to beat the Gunners in the Champions League. Criticised in the press, the Swiss defender took time to recover, although was able to play an important part in Switzerland’s unsuccessful Euro 2008 campaign.

Arsene Wenger is known to be a keen admirer of Senderos and his ‘unique’ stopping skills, but Villa’s apparent interest will certainly be noted by the Frenchman, and may potentially be able to fill the void left by Olof Mellberg.

To be honest Senderos with Gallas has been our best partnership in the last 2/3 years so unless Djourou suddenly starts playing which Wenger refuses to allow I’d want him playing with Gallas.
