The 27-year old, who has six Italy caps to his name, spent last season on loan at Fiorentina where he made 32 Serie A appearances, having joined from Inter Milan in 2012.

Viviano has previously been reported to have attracted the interest of the North London club and Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini admitted that he will be heading for the Premier League.

"Stefano Sorrentino and Samir Ujkani will be our goalkeepers this season," he told Stadio News 24.

"We haven't received any offers for them, whereas Viviano will go to Arsenal."

Arsene Wenger's side are currently in talks with Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil, while Chelsea striker Demba Ba has also been linked with a move to Emirates Stadium.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

Warnock sacked by Palace

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
