Gunners make Eduardo move
02 Jul 2007 - 11:47:30
Arsenal have made their first move in the post-Thierry Henry era by agreeing to sign Croatia international striker Eduardo da Silva from Dinamo Zagreb.
The 24-year-old has been signed on a four-year contract to fill the void created by former captain Henry's £16million departure to Barcelona last month.
The Brazilian-born forward moved to Europe at the age of 15 and took Croatian nationality in 2002.
Eduardo has netted seven times in 12 international appearances - including one of the goals in Croatia's 2-0 Euro 2008 qualifying victory over England in Zagreb last October.
He also scored the first competitive goal at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium when the Gunners defeated Dinamo 5-1 on aggregate in August 2006 during the qualifying rounds for last season's Champions League.
The Rio de Janeiro-born marksman will officially sign for the Gunners for an undisclosed fee after passing a medical.
