Croatian striker could be returning to English football.
Read more Arsenal transfer gossip.
Former Arsenal striker Eduardo has been linked with a return to the Premier League this summer with both Stoke City and West Ham United interested in his signature, reports the Stoke Sentinel.
The Brazilian-born forward, who will be representing Croatia at this summer’s World Cup, is coming to the end of his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk and therefore will be available on a free transfer at the end of the month.
With plenty of Premier League, Champions League and international experience under his belt, he is an attractive prospect for a number of sides.
Now 31-years-old, Eduardo managed just seven goals during his three-year spell with the Gunners, but his spell in north London was badly hampered by the horrific broken leg he suffered in February 2008.
His strike rate for Croatia has been much more impressive as he has struck 29 times in 64 appearances for his adopted country. He will likely make an appearance for them on Thursday night in the opening match of the World Cup against Brazil in Sao Paulo. Croatia go on to face Cameroon and then Mexico in Group A of the competition.
Were Stoke to bring in the experienced attacker then it would be another piece of a major summer overhaul by Mark Hughes at the Britannia Stadium. The Welshman has already added Phil Bardsley, Steve Sidwell and Mame Diouf to his squad, all on free transfers.
