Palermo goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano will have his medical ahead of a proposed move to Arsenal after the two clubs agreed a deal for the shot-stopper, according to The Metro.
The 27-year-old went on loan to Fiorentina last season, before his parent club Palermo were relegated to Serie B.
The Italian international has arrived in London ahead of his move to the Gunners, and will be expected to play as their second choice goalkeeper, behind current number one Wojceich Szczesny.
The 'keeper has been a lifelong supporter of Fiorentina, the club he was loaned out to, and he has the tattoo to prove it.
Despite interest from other teams such as Milan, Napoli and Roma, it looks like Viviano will be joining Arsenal, who have only added two recruits to their squad this summer.
Poland international Szczesny has been subject of scrutiny in the opening fixtures of the 2013-2014 season, and this is the reason the Gunners have been linked heavily with a move for Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
