Arsenal today completed the deal to bring Eduardo 'Dudu' Da Silva to Arsenal for an undisclosed fee.
The deal was confirmed by the club yesterday, subject to a medical. The Croatian striker today signed for his new club, subject to getting international clearance.
The two-time title winning striker scored 73 goals for his now former employers in 100 games.
Speaking to Arsenal.com boss Arsene Wenger said: 'We are delighted to have signed Eduardo Da Silva. He has great qualities and will integrate very well into our style of football.'
The Brazilian-born forward is clearly lethal infront of goal, but Wenger hinted he may use him in other posistions.
'He is a very good finisher and although he is predominantly a striker, he is a very adaptable player.
'I have known about him for a while but his performances against us in last year’s Champions League really showed what a dangerous player he is.
'Eduardo will be a great asset for us and we are all looking forward to him joining up with us.'
Eduardo himself again expressed his joy at being given a chance at a club as big as Arsenal: 'I am so happy and proud to be joining Arsenal Football Club.
Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world with many great players and I am looking forward to helping my new club challenge for trophies.'
Eduardo will wear the NO.9 shirt formally worn by Jose reyes and Julio Baptista. Let's hope his time at the club is better than that had by Jose and Julio.
