Emiliano Viviano has joined Arsenal on a season-long loan from Serie B side Palermo, with the Gunners given the option to snap him up permanently if he impresses. They've chased various goalkeepers throughout the window to compete with current first-choice stopper Wojciech Szczęsny, though Viviano has now been confirmed as the chosen one.
The Italian international spent last season on loan at his boyhood club Fiorentina, though the viola elected not to take up the option to sign the 27-year-old after an underwhelming spell. He made 32 league appearances for Fiorentina, though occasionally lost his starting spot to inexperienced Brazilian Neto.
However, there's no doubt that Viviano is a capable keeper, having been capped six times by Italy at international level. He was excellent in a two season spell at Bologna before moving to Palermo via Inter Milan in 2011, and should be a solid acquisition.
