Everton turn to Arsenal defender Senderos after Neill sale

Everton are ready to make an offer for Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.

Everton are ready to make an offer for Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos.

The Mirror says the Swiss defender desperately wants to leave the Emirates this January as he believes his chances of making his country’s World Cup squad are in jeopardy.

Senderos has featured in just two matches this season - both in the League Cup - and Atletico Madrid are keen on luring him to Spain.

But with the departure of Lucas Neill to Galatasaray, Everton manager David Moyes has earmarked Senderos, 24, as a potential replacement.

Senderos spent last season on-loan at AC Milan but failed to engineer a permanent move there and now the return of Sol Campbell has hastened the Arsenal man’s desire to leave.
