Viviano confirms Genoa talks

Emiliano Viviano is owned by Inter, but unlikely to stay at San Siro. “Genoa are ready to negotiate,” said his agent.

The goalkeeper was part of a co-ownership deal with Bologna, but Inter took over his contract after an error in the paperwork during their auction.

With Julio Cesar already assured of the gloves, it seems certain Italy second choice Viviano will move on.

“There is interest from Genoa and they are ready to negotiate, but it's premature to say he will certainly move there,” agent Claudio Vigorelli told

“We must wait and see what happens in the next few hours. The lad likes Genoa, as he considers it an important club where he can play consistently.”

It's believed Genoa will offer striker Rodrigo Palacio as part of the exchange, as he is requested by new Coach Gian Piero Gasperini.
