Arsenal misfit targeted by Serie A giants

Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano has reportedly been shortlisted as a potential cheap addition in the summer by Serie A giants AC Milan, according to Italian publication La Repubblica.

Viviano joined the Gunners on a season-long loan from Palermo last summer, but is still waiting to make his first senior appearance, failing to convince Arsene Wenger that he deserves to be picked ahead of either Wojciech Szczesny or Lukasz Fabianski.

That snub has made a permanent switch to North London look an extremely remote possibility, with one of Viviano's former clubs Bologna linked with attempting to end his loan spell prematurely earlier this month.

Serie A strugglers Milan have now entered the race for his signature though, with the Rossoneri now reportedly ready to open negotiations with Palermo to secure the Italian international stopper's services for next season.

Milan are thought to want quality competition for long-term number one Christian Abbiati but only if available at a bargain price, with Palmero ready to talk terms over selling a keeper who can count himself as rather unfortunate not to have secured a permanent deal with boyhood club Fiorentina last season.
