Tottenham and Arsenal are chasing Palermo goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano.

The Daily Star says new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is keen to bring in a new stopper this summer, as he looks for a long-term replacement for veteran Brad Freidel.

And the Portuguese coach is thought to have settled on Viviano as a likely target.

A bidding war is likely to develop for the Italy international, with Arsenal and Fiorentina also thought to be tracking the star.
