Sebastian Squillaci has emerged as a transfer target for French side AS Monaco, according to the Mirror.
The French club – who were relegated from Ligue 1 last season – are bankrolled by a Russian billionaire, who is said to be keen on bringing in reinforcements.
Sebastian Squillaci has endured a torrid time since he arrived at the Emirates from Spanish side Sevilla in 2010.
He was at fault for Fulham’s late winner at Craven Cottage through a defensive error, and was also brought on as a substitute during the Arsenal’s 4-4 away draw with Newcastle while the Gunners were 4-0 up.
Despite being well down the pecking order at Arsenal, Squillaci has found himself on the bench in recent times due to the current defensive injury crisis plaguing Arsene Wenger’s side.
The Frenchman will be looking to link-up with his former side in the coming days as Monaco owner Dmitry Rybolovlev seeks a final answer from Arsenal.
Squillaci has 21 caps with France and has won the Copa del Rey during his time in Spain. He was also part of the Monaco side that lost 3-0 to Jose Mourinho’s Porto in the 2004 Champions League final.
