The Croatian forward is thought to be becoming increasingly agitated at the Emirates with his lack of first team football, although that could soon change after the weekend international injury picked up by Robin van Persie.
Rafael Benitez is desperate to add some strike power to his struggling Reds side, and the News of the World reports that the 26-year-old striker is at the top of Benitez’s wish list to make a possible partnership with Spanish superstar Fernando Torres.
The Brazilian-born star has made a commendable recovery from his horrific injury, a leg break picked up against Birmingham City in the summer of 2008. Back to full fitness, Eduardo is eager to play more football after missing out for so long during his recovery.
After making only 25 appearances for the Gunners since signing in 2007, Benitez will need to persuade the striker that there will be more starting minutes on the table at Anfield if he is to have any chance of signing the striker on a £10 million deal. (Give Me Football)
Now by dream I mean this is just not going to happen. I wish it would, believe me I really do, but it won’t. First off Eduardo has an Arsenal future and alongside Robin Van Persie they have an excellent top notch partnership and secondly the sum reported, £10m, isn’t close to his worth.
The Croatian would no doubt work well alongside El Nino and he is a lethal instinctive finisher who can also create something out of nothing. Given that Rafa hasn’t got much in the way of funds we are going to have to be a lot more shrewd in the transfer market and look for bargains and I am afraid that doesn’t mean forking out £20m for Carlton Cole either!
