Arsenal Striker Eduardo Very Close to Leave the North London Club

Arsenal’s Croatian striker Eduardo now seems to be planning to move away from the North London club this summer. Manager Arsene Wenger has reportedly told the striker that he is not in his plan for the upcoming season and indicated that he would not mind if Eduardo leaves the club seeking to revive his career somewhere else.

Eduardo failed to regain his form after coming back from a horrific injury that he suffered in early 2008. He had been in excellent form before sustaining a broken leg and dislocated ankle, and at one stage, it looked the injury would bring an abrupt end to his career.

However, the Croatia international returned in action in 2009, but has so far been struggling for form. Once a promising striker, Eduardo could not find the net in his last 12 appearances for Arsenal.

The arrival of former Bordeaux strike Marouane Chamakh on a free transfer has pushed Eduardo down further in the pecking order. Dutch striker Robin van Persie would also come back in action for Arsenal from the beginning of the next season after shrugging off his injury, while Nicklas Bendtner started showing his maturity from the last season.

It appears there is hardly any chance for Eduardo in Arsenal’s starting eleven. In fact, he is not even the first choice reverse striker who could deputize for an injured van Persie or Chamakh. So, it looks the 27-year-old would love a move to another club looking for more first team football.
