Arsenal Swoop For Da Silva

Arsenal Swoop For Da Silva

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Brazillian born Croatian striker, Eduardo Alves Da Silva.

Eduardo, 24, will sign a 4-year contract subject to passing a medical at Arsenal's London Colney training ground. The Dinamo Zagreb striker will sign for an undisclosed fee.

His scoring record is outstanding. He scored 34 goals in 32 games for Zagreb last season, and a total of 71 goals in 100 apperances for the Croatian team. He also has seven goals in 12 international apperances for Croatia.

Arsenal.com had this to say: 'Arsenal Football Club can confirm that terms have been agreed with Dinamo Zagreb for the transfer of striker Eduardo Da Silva on a four year contract for an undisclosed fee, subject to a medical.'

So this now begs the question: 'is he the man Wenger wants to replace Henry?'

We'll have to wait till September 1st for the answer to that.

Doesn't it feel great to have finally signed a bloody player???

It might only be the Croat league, but 34 goals is a good return in any league.

and the fee is not 16 and not 24 mil EUR as some are speculating. It is 10-12 mil EUR

At last a signig and some news! We can all be sure that Wenger has been aware of him for some time and has watched him very closely. I had this feeling he wouldn't sign Anelka who would cost at least 10m and is 28 now. We need at least one more attacking midfielder. Amazing that the media never got a sniff of this. Let's add Robinho!

Where's Arsene? What's he doing? When is he going to show his hand? Nothing, not a word, zilch - then up pops this story! It's starting to look like another Wenger summer!

A very interesting, possibly-well-researched and very surprising signing. What is the point of transfer rumours, you wonder: http://thirdgen.wordpress.com/features/pointofrumours/

Whether it's €10m or €24m is less significant than that he is the man Wenger wants. Whatever the price he comes with the same guarantees as Eto'o, Huntelaar, Torres or any other of the 'names'.

G4L, where did you hear the €10-12Million? Just a thought...could Wenger switch him to the left wing? He's a left footer, and he could bring some much needed goals from midfield?
