In the past we have discovered that many star players make a return to the club where they most find themselves and have spent the best time of their career. Such moves do end up good for both the parties. Recent example: Kaka’s return to AC Milan.
Now in this January transfer window there is a shortage of quality players. The cup tied rule disallows and limits players to a certain competition. And generally players don’t tend to move in this window as it’s the crucial time for their respective clubs.
Shakhtar Donetsk forward Eduardo, who previously plied his trade at Arsenal, has expressed his wish to move to the Emirates if an opportunity should ever present itself. The 30 year old was quoted in The Metro, saying: “Of course I’d like to go back to Arsenal. I don’t know anything about their interest, but everybody knows that when I left, everything was done in a friendly manner.”
The Croatian international has been sparingly used during matches this term, either being substituted mid game or being brought on as a late game sub by his club, which has raised question marks over his future at the side.
Now his come and get me signal will certainly tempt the Frenchman as Eduardo is a good enough and cheap back up to Giroud in the time when there aren’t many top quality strikers available.
