Former Arsenal striker Eduardo is hopeful that a good 2014 World Cup campaign with Croatia could land him another shot at life in the Premier League.

The Brazil-born forward is expected to be a part of his adopted nation’s squad for the showpiece tournament next summer, and could be playing for his club future with his contract at Shakhtar Donetsk due to expire around the same time.

Eduardo spent three years in North London prior to his switch to the Ukraine, and showed glimpses of his ability for the Gunners.

Despite having some bad memories – including a potentially career-threatening leg-break in 2008 – from his spell in England, the 30-year-old hinted that he is hopeful of securing a switch back to the country.

“I still love the Premier League,” Eduardo told the Daily Star.

“I keep in touch with Tomas Rosicky and Bacary Sagna at Arsenal and keep an eye on what is generally happening in England.

“I expect to play for Croatia in Brazil and if I have a good World Cup, who knows what that could lead to?”

There is no reported concrete interest in Eduardo from Premier League teams, but a host of sides could be attracted by his vast experience and proven goalscoring record.
