Fiorentina boss Cesare Prandelli has confirmed his interest in Ivory Coast midfielder Emmanuel Eboue, as earlier reported by eyefootball. The Arsenal man is set to quit the Emirates in an 8 million GBP deal, according to reports.

"Eboue is a very important player," he said. "In attack he is second to very few players in his role.

"I'm not going to look at other positions because first we want to evaluate what we have in order not to make the slightest mistake in the market.

"We have to make targeted moves. Eboue has characteristics which we are definitely looking for.

"We want to attack a lot on the wings and so we need players who are good at forcing their way through and with good technical skills too.

"I repeat that this Arsenal lad has a stand-out driving force.

"I don't want to think about other roles at the moment, also because he is not yet our player."
