Ex-Arsenal star and Fulham-target Eduardo welcomes interest
Former Arsenal forward Eduardo da Silva has denied that he has had any contact with Fulham over a possible transfer to Craven Cottage but was pleased to hear about interest from a Premier League club.
Eduardo left Arsenal to Shakhtar Donetsk in 2010 following three years at the Emirates Stadium. During his time at the Gunners he made 67 appearances and scored 22 goals though is remembered for suffering a horrific leg break which kept him out of the game for a year.
Fulham have been linked with a move for the Croatian and were reported to be preparing a £7million bid for the 29-year-old as a possible replacement for Clint Dempsey. However, Eduardo has not heard anything about Fulham's interest.
"No-one else has contacted me or asked for an opinion," Eduardo told Sportske Novosti.
"You know how it goes with transfers, I learned that even at Dinamo (Zagreb).
"Someone asks the club about me, that club then gets mentioned and immediately it's a done deal."
Eduardo remains a fan’s favourite at Arsenal and received a standing ovation when he returned to the Emirates Stadium in the Champions League with Shakhtar. The 29-year old has admitted he was happy to be linked with a return to England.
"Of course it's nice to hear that I'm mentioned in England," Eduardo added. "Especially if there's Premier League interest."
Since moving to Shakhtar, Eduardo has lifted the Ukrainian Premier League two years running and has made 58 appearances for the club. Eduardo has an impressive strike-rate for his country having been capped 51 times for Croatia, scoring 25 goals in the process.
