Palermo maintain interest in Arsenal target
Friday 24 June 2011
Palermo have not given up hope of signing Arsenal target Ricardo Alvarez but know they face stiff competition to acquire the Argentina star.
Arsenal are leading the race to sign the 23-year-old attacking midfielder from Velez Sarsfield this summer but Palermo, Malaga, Inter Milan, Roma and Sevilla are also keen to acquire the 23-year-old's services.
"We are very interested in Alvarez," Zamparini told Corriere dello Sport.
"But it will be difficult to bring him to Palermo considering that there are other clubs like Arsenal and Malaga interested in him."
Alvarez holds an Italian passport and is valued by the Clausura champions at €12million (£10.6million).
