Arsenal boss Wenger admits agent tipped him off about Squillaci

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he swooped for Sebastien Squillaci on advice from an agent.

The French defender signed for Arsenal from Sevilla in a whirlwind deal.

And Wenger revealed: "People are often critical of agents, but one of them told me that Squillaci was affordable and it was something I did not know about.

"I tried for another defender, but did not find one, so we took him."
