The Metro has revealed that the North Londoners have finally signed goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano form the Italian second divison side Palermo
The 27-year-old was formerly linked to the Gunners and they had almost completed his signing, but the deal collapsed at the last minute, claims the website.
Wenger had been linked to a few keepers as well this summer including Julio Cesar, and the Frenchman was chasing Valencia’s Vicente Guaita, but an agreement could not be reached.
Viviano is not an anonymous being for those who follow Italian football as he has made 8 appearances for his national side (Italy) and he spent the last season on loan at the Serie A side Fiorentina where he made 32 appearances.
Apparently, the keeper will have his medical today because the transfer window shuts down, and the Gunners are planning to get him on season-long loan first and then make him their official player.
Viviano will prove to be a tough competitor for Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski as both of the keepers are still rotated by Wenger.
