Viviano heading for Bologna exit

Italy international Emiliano Viviano will leave Bologna at the end of the season, his agent has confirmed.

"Emiliano is having a great season and he has demonstrated that he is a goalkeeper who deserves to play on the biggest stages," Claudio Vigorelli told TMW.

"As a result, I think his objective is to join a club whose ambitions are different from the ones Bologna have."

The Florence-born custodian is having a campaign to remember at the Stadio Dall'Ara in just his second Serie A season.

Consistently one of the best custodians in the Division, he is also presently the Italian No 1 given the absence of the injured Gigi Buffon.

Viviano is co-owned by Inter, a club who are looking to buy Bologna's 50 per cent stake in him for around €6.5m.

The former Brescia shot-stopper has also been linked with moves to Arsenal, Villarreal, Bayern Munich, Rubin Kazan and Zenit St Petersburg.
