The Latest Goalkeeper To Be Linked With Arsenal
Reports in Italian newspaper Daily Tuttosport are linking Arsenal with a move for Bologna keeper Emiliano Viviano. Viviano is 24-years-old and was a stand-out performer in a struggling Bologna side this season. He is co-owned by Inter Milan and also spent four seasons at Brescia. At 6ft 4in, he certainly has the height and presence Arsenal fans are looking for and is reported to have very good technique and positional sense, as well as being a penalty expert.
Viviano is regarded as one of Italy’s most promising young goalkeepers back in his homeland and Fiorentina have also been linked with a move. He is the latest in a long, long, long line of goalkeepers throughout-out Europe who is being touted as the new Arsenal No1, and i must say so far he is the most disappointing, which means he’s probably the most realistic to sign.
I can’t comment on the bloke too much as I’ve never heard of him until this morning, but he’s certainly not the player i hoped Wenger would be looking at. He may be amazing, i really don’t know, but in my opinion Arsenal don’t need any more uncertainty surrounding the goalkeeping position. We need a player to come in, know exactly what he’s doing, who the fans all know and already respect. We need a player with a ready-made reputation among the Arsenal faithful.
This is most likely just another shot in the dark by the media and Arsene has no interest in him at all. I can’t see him buying a goalkeeper unless it’s someone who is established already as a top class stopper. He would be better off sticking with the chuckle brothers in goal next season.
Stay tuned for more transfer rumours as the players linked to Arsenal become more ridiculous and unlikely by the day.
