Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle has expressed a desire to sign Emmanuel Eboue from Arsenal.

The Ivory Coast international emerged as a transfer target for Fiorentina earlier in the summer when the Gunners were keen to take Felipe Melo in the opposite direction.

A swap deal involving the two players was proposed by Viola but ultimately failed to materialise, with Melo securing a move to Juventus.

Fiorentina have now rekindled their interest in the 26-year-old, although Della Valle admits it will be difficult to prise him away from Emirates Stadium.

"Arsenal's Eboue is a really good player and it won't be easy to take him to Florence," he told the Italian press.

Eboue is contracted to Arsenal until 2010 and reports suggest Fiorentina would be willing to pay around €10million (£8.6m).
