Bendtner Set To Be Arsenal’s New Number 9
Rumours have circulated today that Eduardo Da Silva is on the verge of a move to Shaktar Donetsk, for 6 million pounds. Eduardo joined the Gunners in 2008, with an impressive goal tally in his native Croatia with Dinamo Zagreb, the turning point in his Arsenal career looks to be when he unfortunately broke his leg on a sad day at St Andrew’s.
Nicklas Bendtner has stated in the past that he would one day love to don the number 9 shirt at Arsenal, he previously asked Eduardo if he could wer the #9 but Gael Clichy was not willing to change from the number 22 which Eduardo wanted. Bendtner is currently nursing a groin problem and was not included in the pre-season trip to Austria as he has just had treatment, he will hopefully be back for the Emirates Cup.
