Arsenal centre-back Philippe Senderos is close to signing a pre-contract agreement with an Italian top flight club, according to a report from Sky Sports News.
The Swiss international revealed this week that he was desperate to move away from the Emirates this season in order to find first team football ahead of the World Cup.
The 24-year-old is apparently happy at Arsenal, but very frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities.
He spent the bulk of last season on loan at AC Milan, but is is not yet clear whether it is to them that he will return when he leaves north London.
His pre-contract agreement means that he will definitely leave in the summer, but there is as yet no indication as to what he could do for the rest of this campaign.
Arsene Wenger’s signing of Sol Campbell suggests that there could yet be movement out of the Emirates on the defensive front this window.
