Arsenal linked with Italian goalkeeper

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are reported to be considering a move for Emiliano Viviano of Palermo in their quest to recruit another goalkeeper before the close of the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have been linked with a number of potential acquisitions over the past few months and, according to talkSPORT, Viviano is among the targets for the north London club as the transfer deadline edges closer.

Viviano, who has six caps at senior level for Italy, has been linked with Arsenal in the past and, it would appear, Arsene Wenger is ready to revive his interest in the Palermo custodian.

The Arsenal manager has been actively pursuing new 'keeper to rival Wojciech Szczesny for the club's No.1 spot, and Viviano could yet be an option for the Frenchman ahead of the deadline on September 2.

Giorgio Perinetti, director at Palermo, has confirmed that the 27-year-old has the option to secure a transfer to England this summer, although it is unclear if Arsenal are the club offering the player a move to the Premier League.

"There is an English path that exists for Viviano," Perinetti told Sport Italia.

"However, it all still needs to be verified. We will see over the next few days whether the transfer will be possible or not."
