Reports: Eduardo closing in on €7.5m Shakhtar move

Arsenal striker Eduardo is on the verge of completing a €7.5 million move to Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk, according to reports in Croatia.

The 27-year-old has never found his form since sustaining a horrific broken leg against Birmingham in February 2008. His 2009/10 campaign was also littered with small injuries, despite that he netted 5 goals and 7 assists.

Last week, Arsenal first team coach Boro Primorac admitted that the Brazilian-born Croatian frontman had a big decision to make on his future.

“I do not know what will happen to Dudu. Preparations are just beginning and I do not know whether he will go or stay. He just has to decide”

‘Dudu’ is arguably the Gunners fourth/fifth choice striker with the likes of van Persie, Bendtner, Chamakh, Walcott and Vela in the squad, so it’s no real surprise as to why he wants to get more playing time. 

It’s expected that he’ll undergo a medical with Shakhtar on Monday before signing a contract worth €2.5 million with the Ukrainians.
