Viviano in link with Palermo

Palermo could offer Inter goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano the chance to win a place in Italy’s Euro 2012 squad.

Viviano, who has almost recovered from knee ligament damage sustained in pre-season, is looking for a loan move away from San Siro this month.

With first team football at the Meazza blocked by Brazilian international Julio Cesar, the custodian wants to end the campaign elsewhere.

Inter signed the former Brescia player outright in the summer and were set to send him on to Genoa before injury struck.

Palermo have recently been linked with the Italian international, who stepped in for the injured Gigi Buffon during Euro 2012 qualifying.

The Rosanero sold Salvatore Sirigu in the summer to Paris Saint-Germain and they’ve had trouble replacing him.

Greek goalkeeper Alexandros Tzorvas started the season as first choice, but he has lost his place in the team to reserve Francesco Benussi recently.
