Squillaci: It was impossible to turn down Arsenal

Sevilla defender Sebastien Squillaci admits that once he found out Arsenal were interested in him there was never a chance he would stay in Spain, as he prepares to seal a move to Emirates Stadium.

Squillaci will sign for the Gunners as long as he completes a medical at the club, thought to be taking place on Tuesday.

And the France centre-back revealed that the prospect working under Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger at the club that was the main attraction of moving to London.

"If a French player receives an offer from Arsene Wenger, it's practically impossible to turn down,'' Squillaci told the Guardian.

"It was a sensational offer for me and I was happy Sevilla let me go. It was a difficult situation but I knew I had to take this chance."

And despite Squillaci raising some eyebrows in Spain after asking to be left out of Sevilla's Champions League play-off with Braga last week - in order to avoid being cup-tied - he has no regrets about the way the transfer has developed.

"I knew if I played against Braga then I would not have been able to play for Arsenal in the Champions League, he said.

"Arsenal were always the team I watched out for. For any spectator like me, you had to watch a squad with [Thierry] Henry, [Robert] Pires, [Patrick] Vieira and [William] Gallas. Now, I'm happy to have my name in the history books.

"For me, this is a great new challenge and I've gone there purely to be part of that. I don't think my age is a problem. My experience in football is great and players of my age tend to be at the peak of their playing career.''

Squillaci, 30, will strengthen an Arsenal rearguard weakened by the departures of William Gallas, Mikael Silvestre, Sol Campbell and Philippe Senderos if he does put pen to paper and complete a move to Wenger's men.
