The Arsenal medical staff have assessed the extent of the damage to Eduardo and hope that he will have a full recovery after nine months.
So who is the man to replace Eduardo?
With RVP apparently soon to be back from injury himself I’m sure he can slot into the left hand side of attack until the end of the season. But this still leaves us very short of attacking options for almost a year.
Will Arsenal go out and sign a striker in the summer? I doubt it.
I feel we already have the prefect replacement for Eduardo and thats Carlos Vela.
Currently on loan to Osasuna,Arsène Wenger has already said that he expects Carlos Vela to be a part of his first-team squad next season. Carlos is a very similar player to Eduardo.Cool in front of goal and naturally left footed.
This is Carlos in action vs Real Madrid playing on the left hand side.We look forward to seeing him at the club next season. Lets just hope that Van Persie will be back soon
Carlos Vela stats.
→ Celta de Vigo (loan)
