Former Arsenal striker Eduardo da Silva has admitted that he would jump at the chance to re-sign for the club.

The Croatian international originally signed for the Gunners in 2007 following a prolific spell for Dinamo Zagreb.

Eduardo started his Arsenal career off in a positive manner and looked to be flourishing before he unfortunately suffered a horrific leg break at the feet of Martin Taylor.

Having never recovered his form, Eduardo was sold to Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk in 2010.

But the striker has been very much a bit-part player for the club, starting just six games so far this season and has subsequently been linked with a move away.

Speaking to Il Sussidiario, Eduardo confirmed he would love the chance to re-sign for Arsene Wenger.

Eduardo said: "I do not know anything about it, other than what I read in the media.

"But of course, who would not like to go to Arsenal? Everybody knows that when I left, everything was done in a friendly manner.

"We are still friends and after leaving I spoke several times with Arsene Wenger. I still have many friends in London but of course this does not mean that I will come back to Arsenal."

But Eduardo is under few illusions and understands a return to the Emirates is unlikely. Instead, the Brazilian-born striker is expected to move to Serie A and has confirmed he would also love a move to Italy.

Eduardo added: "I would like to play more because of the World Cup. Inter Milan are a great club with great tradition. Who wouldn't want to play for them?

"The Italian league remains one of the most difficult and it is always hard to play against all teams in Serie A."
