Sevilla star Didier Zokora believes his soon-to-depart team-mate Sebastien Squillaci will fit very easily into the Arsenal set-up.
The French defender is in London for a medical after the Spanish outfit accepted an offer from the Gunners for the 30-year-old.
Zokora knows all about the Premier League, having plied his trade for three seasons with Tottenham before moving onto Sevilla, and he believes Squillaci will adapt easily into Arsenal's style of play.
The Sevilla midfielder said the former Lyon centre-half is technically gifted but also has the steel demanded from the English top-flight.
He told Sky Sports News: "He is a very strong defender, he wins every duel. He is a very good defender because he plays for the French national side.
"I think if he plays for Arsenal he will play easy because Arsenal play very easy football.
"For him, I think it is a very good option."
He added: "He plays very simple but he wins every duel, he is a very strong defender."
