Arsenal Snap Up Salvio
Accustomed to transfers, Eduardo Salvio has made the third big money move of his career, joining Premier League side Arsenal for an undisclosed fee. The 24 year old, who started at Argentine club Lanus, will now play in his third elite league in Europe after stints at Atletico Madrid and SL Benfica.
Salvio made 60 league appearances across his 3 seasons at Benfica, often interrupted by injury and poor form, and many may argue fans never saw the best of him. Salvio will now attempt to kickstart his career for the third time, joining English heavyweights Arsenal on a £52,000 per week contract.
Salvio's international career has stagnated and will be hoping it can be reignited with this latest move
A talented and established right winger, Salvio has made a name for himself as a skillful dribbler with great speed and a knack for attacking positions. Despite all this, Salvio believes the signing of wonderkid Doran Rotariu contributed to his sale.
"I don't think [Jesus] saw much in me after he signed Doran, he knew there was interest abroad and decided to cash in. I'm not trying to complain however, and I'm optimistic about my new chapter at Arsenal."
