Official: Palermo's Viviano to Arsenal

Palermo have confirmed Italian international Emiliano Viviano joined Arsenal on loan.

The goalkeeper, who spent last season on loan at Fiorentina, has been linked with the London club over the last few weeks.

“Stefano Sorrentino and Samir Ujkani will be our goalkeepers this season,” President Maurizio Zamparini told Stadio News 24.

“We haven’t received any offers for them, whereas Viviano will go to Arsenal.”

Viviano, who had his problems with form at Fiorentina last term, has already undergone his medical at Arsenal.

The 27-year-old joined the English club on loan, with an option to buy at the end of the season.

“Viviano is a player that we have rated for some time and we are very pleased to have signed him on loan,” said Arsene Wenger.

“He’s experienced and has proved himself at a high level, and provides us with excellent cover to our existing goalkeepers.”
