Agent admits Arsenal face competition for Fiorentina's Melo

The agent of Fiorentina wing-back Felipe Melo has confirmed the interest of Arsenal.

Jose Rodrigo Bastos said: "Felipe is one of the great names of European football. Fiorentina have already taken measures to upgrade the player's contract, which was scheduled for the third year.

"Apart from Arsenal, another power of European football has shown interest in Felipe and I believe that, if he continues to play at these big levels, Fiorentina will have difficulty in retaining him."
