Wenger welcomes Eduardo

03 Jul 2007 - 13:57:18

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Eduardo da Silva will be a welcome addition to his squad after finalising a deal to bring the Croatia international to the Emirates Stadium.

The 24-year-old has penned a four-year contract and moves to the Gunners for an undisclosed fee, subject to being granted a work permit.

The Brazilian-born hitman, who took Croatian nationality in 2002, played for Dinamo Zagreb against Arsenal in last season's Champions League third qualifying round and netted as Wenger's side progressed on a 5-1 aggregate.

Wenger told the club's official website: "We are delighted to have signed Eduardo Da Silva.

"He has great qualities and will integrate very well into our style of football. 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.

"Da Silva is a pacy, intelligent player. Also, he is hard-working and has a very good team ethic to his game.

"Eduardo will be a great asset for us and we are all looking forward to him joining up with us."
