Arsenal green light for melo bid?

Arsenal last night got the green light to bid for Brazil's Confederations Cup midfield star Felipe Melo.Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was told the Fiorentina ace's £21.5m fee would be cut if Emmanuel Eboue was part of the deal.Wenger wants the 26-year-old ball-winner to add steel to his midfield. And Fiorentina have rejected an approach from Juventus for Melo, who has played for Mallorca, Santander and Almeria.Ivory Coast defender Eboue, also 26, wants to leave after falling out with Arsenal fans in December.Fiorentina director of football Pantaleo Corvino said: "Arsene Wenger wants to speak to me about Melo, and I am ruling nothing out."If there is the chance to do something interesting from the playing point of view as well as financially, we can talk."Eboue is an attractive name to us. I consider him a counterbalance to Melo."Source:
