Palermo president Zamparini admits Arsenal want Ricky Alvarez

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed they're battling Arsenal for Velez Sarsfield midfielder Ricky Alvarez.

Arsenal are leading the race to sign the 23-year-old attacking midfielder from Velez Sarsfield this summer but Palermo, Malaga, Inter Milan, Roma and Sevilla are also keen to acquire the 23-year-old's services.

"We are very interested in Alvarez," Zamparini told Corriere dello Sport.

"But it will be difficult to bring him to Palermo considering that there are other clubs like Arsenal and Malaga interested in him."
