Arsenal Demand £4m From Espanyol for Out-of-Favour Defender

Espanyol are ready to put an end to Sebatien Squillaci's difficult spell at Arsenal by offering him a route out of the club in January.



The Spanish side have declared their interest in the French defender but are currently unwilling to match the £4million transfer fee that Arsenal are demanding.

The 31-year-old made the move to the Emirates in the summer of 2010 but was criticised heavily for his performances in the Arsenal back line and this year has fallen out of favour with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

West Ham had enquired about taking the defender on-loan last month but Arsenal revealed that they are only willing to let the centre-back leave on a permanent deal.

The Spanish newspaper Sport has suggested that the La Liga side have already approached Arsenal about taking the player during the January transfer window and that the north London club are considering the offer.

Espanyol are currently sitting in mid-table and have struggled to make many signings in recent seasons as financial problems have crippled the club.

However, they are still hoping that Arsenal will be willing to lower their asking price in order to get the players wages off their books.
