Arsenal Complete Dudu Signing

Arsenal Complete Dudu Signing

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 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.

His name doesnt start with a J, that has to be some type of good omen for the cursed shirt, it doesnt imply jinx

I.Hope he silences d critics. Hope wenger doesnt move him 2d wings.
03/07/2007 14:37:00
from what ive seen he is definately a striker. versatile or not, his best attribute has to be out and out goalscoring so i hope he stays a striker.

since he's left footed therz every chance he might have to compensate on the wings sometimes but anyway. WELCOME TO THE HOME OF FOOTBALL EDUARDO!!!

Hopefully by the end of next season the spuds will be sick of the sight of Dudu........again!

Now that the Blades appeal has been dismissed, Tevez could be staying with the Hammers and once again the Boss was ready and proven what a great boss he is by signing Eduardo,
