Liverpool set to make hopeful move for Croatian international.
The news doing the rounds over the weekend involved the reported interest shown by Liverpool in our top notch striker Eduardo and for some reason the miserly sum of £10m was repeatedly mentioned, which is probably only sufficient to purchase one of his legs and not the rest of his body.
The Cro-zillian is a fantastic instinctive striker who when fully fit is a 20 goal a season striker at the very least and I can understand why Rafa Benitez is sniffing around but surely any such move will get short shrift from Arsene Wenger and I don’t see Eduardo being interested in such a move when he knows that when he is firing on all cylinders he is a starter at the Emirates alongside Robin Van Persie.
Given that RVP has now gotten himself injured on friendly duty with Holland, how annoying is that by the way, even more weight is now placed on the 26 year old’s shoulders. Because of that horrific tackle from Birmingham City defender Martin Taylor and the subsequent niggling injuries he has collected since his return from that assault, he has managed just 16 Premier League starts in almost two and a half years, however he still shows the signs of a striker who is lethal when in on goal.
I can see why Liverpool would want him given the paucity of options the Merseyside outfit has up front but they may well be barking up the wrong tree with this one. They were also recently linked with a move for Carlton Cole and they may have more luck with that purchase although West Ham reportedly want somewhere in the region of £20m for the England man, which by my reckoning would make Eduardo worth somewhere in the region of £30m, at least!
