Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been reassured by Eduardo that the striker's return to action will be just like signing a new player.
The Brazil-born Croatia international had been out for almost 10 months but is now stepping up his rehabilitation following another run-out with the reserves on Wednesday night when he completed a full 90 minutes at Stoke.
"I feel much stronger than I have and I am very happy now," Eduardo, signed from Dinamo Zagreb in July 2007, told www.Arsenal.com.
He continued: "I think I am ready for the first team, but you would have to ask the boss.
"I feel very well and I am training hard every day. Of course I want to come back quick and strong. Now, every game for me is a big step.
"In my head and everything I am ready. I am just waiting for my chance."
Meanwhile, German league leaders Hoffenheim have been linked with Nicklas Bendtner, but the 21-year-old Denmark striker - who has hit two goals in his last two appearances - will not be leaving Emirates Stadium.
His father and agent, Thomas Bendtner, told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet: "Hoffenheim have shown interest, there are some clubs who call and ask in the transfer window.
"We are pleased that there is interest in him, but leaving is not in our thoughts at the moment. Nicklas will be at Arsenal."
