Arsenal are interested in Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo.

Florence sources say Arsenal are also interested in the midfielder, who they see as a replacement for Barcelona buy Cesc Fabregas.

The Gunners are under pressure to improve their squad after a dismal 2-0 home defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.

Montolivo has refused to sign a new contract and will be a free agent at the end of the season, so the Viola must sell now to avoid losing their investment.
