Milan Table Senderos Bid

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Milan have tabled a bid to sign Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos, and it is likely that the transfer will go through. With just over a week to go until the closure of the transfer window, things are becoming desperate for Milan in their search for a centre back. With key man Alessandro Nesta out injured, and with Dario Simic and Digao having recently been offloaded, the Rossoneri are terribly thin at the back going into the new season. Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic had seemed certain to join the club on loan, but the transfer fell through when the Londoners refused to insert an option. The Corriere now claims that Milan have turned their attentions to another Premiership based player, in the form of Arsenal centre back Philippe Senderos. Milan have made an offer to sign the Swiss international on a one-year loan, with the option to make the move permanent next year for €7-8m. Senderos is down the pecking order at the Emirates following an error-prone season last term, and Arsene Wenger is prepared to let him leave, having just signed a replacement in the form of Manchester United’s Mickael Silvestre. The 23-year-old Senderos has made 74 Premiership appearances, scoring four goals, since signing for Arsenal from Servette in December 2002.
