The 6ft 2ins centre-half is renowned for being strong and powerful in the air,something Arsenal have been lacking for some time. Ciani, 26 also made his debut for France in a friendly against Spain in March.
The main sticking point would a fee which might be as high as £15m, because Ciani has three years left on his contract.
Having watched Ciani a number of times last season in the CL, I think he would be perfect for Arsenal and I would rather we pushed the boat out and signed him rather then Squillaci.
