MILAN - Fiorentina may be willing to sell Brazil midfielder Felipe Melo to Arsenal if the English Premier League club's versatile full-back Emmanuel Eboue is included in the deal, the Serie A side said on Saturday. The 25-year-old has only just signed a new contract with the Florence club until 2013 but had a 25 million euro escape clause inserted into the new deal. Fiorentina said in a statement that only Arsenal had come close to triggering the escape clause and the price could be lowered if Ivory Coast defender Eboue moved the other way.
