Fiorentina star in demand from Arsenal and United

12 October 2011 12:15
According to reports this morning, Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo is being chased by two of English footballs top guns. The midfielder has become a mainstay in their starting XI and has also been a vital member of the Italian national side in recent years.

The Italian star has yet to put pen to paper on a new deal with La Viola, a move which has sparked rapid interest from Arsenal and United. With Arsene Wenger being a known admirer of Montolivos talent and sensing a bargain deal on the horizon, he is ready to make an offer.

Sir Alex Ferguson is not one to let an opportunity slip and has already been in contact regarding a possible move. Scouts from both clubs were thought to be in attendance for the Euro 2012 qualifier between the Azzurri and Northern Ireland last night.
