Just What the Doctor Ordered: Another Defender for the Gunners

Various news outlets are reporting that Arsenal have made an offer for French international and Sevilla defender Sebastien Squillace, and that Sevilla have pulled him from their Champion's League squad so that he will not be cup-tied if he joins the Gunners. Contrary to Wenger's usual preference for young players to develop, Squillace is 30 years old and is very experienced. The timing could not be better given the injuries to Djourou and Koscielny.

Now, if Wenger can only sign a top-flight keeper, like Shay Given or Mark Schwarzer.
