Fiorentina have confirmed their interest in Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Eboue, but they could find it hard to land him.

Viola president Andrea Della Valle has revealed the club are keen on the Ivorian international following the sale of Felipe Melo to Juventus. Eboue can play in defence as well as in the midfield.
