Arsenal and Manchester United are being linked with a move for Portugal keeper Eduardo.
The stopper kept three clean sheets in the World Cup 'Group of Death' against Ivory Coast, North Korea and Brazil, although was perilous to prevent Spain's David Villa from scoring the winner in the last 16 clash on Tuesday.
His performances are thought to have impressed Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and Red Devils manager Sir Alex Ferguson, with the pair both looking to find replacement for their goalkeepers - for different reasons.
Both clubs have been linked with a string of goalkeepers already this summer, with Hugo Lloris, Andrey Akinfeev, Mark Schwarzer and Sebastien Frey just four men to find their names in the frame at either club.
Reports in Europe now claim that both clubs are after the Braga number one, who has always plied his trade in his homeland.
After four years with the B team, Eduardo made his debut at the Estádio AXA in 2005. Two loan stints at Beira-Mar and Vitória F.C. followed in 2007, but the stopper became a permanent fixture for Os Arcebispos on his return in '08.
His form in the Portuguese Liga was recognised by Carlos Queiroz, who handed Eduardo an international debut in 2009. Maintaining that fine form helped the stopper secure the No.1 jersey, a point emphasised by his form in South Africa.
The Premier League giants have now taken an interest, and a potential summer bidding war could ensue, with Braga looking for a fee in the region of £10 million for their star.
