Brighton target on-loan Arsenal Goalkeeper

Emiliano Viviano is subject to interest from Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Goalkeeper, currently on loan at Arsenal from Serie A outfit Palermo, has not featured for the North Londoners at all, having failed to get ahead of Wojciech Szczesney and Lukasz Fabianski in the pecking order.

Viviano will have to work hard to make an impact at Brighton too with Tomasz Kuszczak the current number one at the AMEX while the Seagulls also have Peter Brezovan and Casper Ankergren on their books.

Six time capped Italian Viviano has not played for parent club Palermo since 2012 as he was loaned to Fiorentina last season where he kept goal on 32 occasions.

Arsenal have the option to make his loan deal a permanent one in the Summer but this is unlikely, even though Fabianski will leave the club at the end of the season, due to the lack of playing time Viviano has had at the Emirates.

Brighton are currently without a manager after Oscar Garcia resigned following the Sussex club losing 6-1 on aggregate to Derby in the Championship play off semi final.

Tim Sherwood, Malky Mackay and Chris Hughton are early favourites to succeed the departing Spaniard.
