Arsenal will have to offer the 'earth, moon and stars' to land striker

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy has moved to play down rumours of Kevin Doyle moving to Arsenal.

Doyle impressed last season as Wolves kept their Premier League status, scoring nine goals in the process.

After having a good season, Doyle had been linked with a move to the Gunners but has pledged his future to the West Midlands club, who signed him for a club record £6.5 million last summer.

McCarthy said: “When Kevin said recently that he was pledging his future to Wolves it suddenly caused a stir.

“The reality is that he was saying it to get everybody off his back. Leave him alone and let him play his football.

“Look, if Manchester United come in and offer the club £50 million and give him 200 grand a week, I can't keep him. Then I'll have to say 'thanks, Kevin, all the best, see you'

“But no, there's not been any approach from Arsenal - I can't be any straighter. Doyle will be a player for us unless someone comes in offering the earth, moon and stars for him,” he added.

One player linked with a move away from the Emirates is striker Eduardo da Silva, who is reportedly a target for Valencia.

The Gunners forward has also been linked with Aston Villa but Arsene Wenger would rather see him move abroad, despite wanting to keep hold of the Croatian.
