Genoa close in on Vivano

Emiliano Viviano will spend next season defending the goal of Genoa, reports on Monday are claiming.

According to the Genoa edition of La Repubblica, the Inter custodian will move to Marassi from Inter.

Viviano was only signed outright by Inter last week when they won a blind auction with Bologna, the club who owned 50 per cent of his contract.

With Julio Cesar already at the Stadio Meazza, the Italian international wants first team football rather than a reserve role at San Siro.

Having been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Roma and Schalke 04, it appears that Genoa have won the race to sign him.

Viviano's possible arrival would see the port club try and sell Portuguese international Eduardo just a year after his capture.

It's unclear whether Viviano will make the switch to Genoa as part of a deal that could see Rodrigo Palacio move in the other direction.
