Palermo battle Gunners for Alvarez

Palermo are pessimistic about their chances of signing Velez Sarsfield midfielder Ricardo Alvarez due to the interest of Arsenal and Malaga.

'Pastore worth more than Sanchez'

Alvarez, 23, is said to have attracted the interest of clubs including Inter Milan, Roma and Sevilla with Argentinean champions Velez demanding a fee of €12 million for his services.

Palermo may need to sign a replacement for Argentina playmaker Javier Pastore if any club is willing to meet his €50 million asking price, but club president Maurizio Zamparini believes Arsenal and Malaga may be better placed to secure his signature.

Zamparini told Corriere dello Sport: "We are very interested in Alvarez, but it will be difficult to bring him to Palermo considering that there are other clubs like Arsenal and Malaga interested in him."
