Academica to Porto, Arsenal, or Palermo?
Academica forward Eder, also known as Ederzito, is currently being tracked by a host of some of the biggest clubs in Europe. Eder has scored seven goals in all competitions so far this season, and has helped Academica to sixth in the Liga Zon Sagres. The forward was born in Guinea-Bissau, but remains eligible to play for the Portuguese national team as he has yet to play for the African country and has resided in Portugal for the necessary amount of time. A call-up may not be too far away. The player has stated that he hopes to travel with the Portuguese squad to Euro 2012, and although that may be a stretch, a call-up is inevitable if he continues his form. At the end of this season, Eder’s contract with Academica expires, and he will be available for free. Porto, Arsenal, and Palermo have all shown interest, with Palermo’s having already been rejected by the player. Eder has been one of the bright spots in the Liga Zon Sagres this season, which is a breath of fresh air because he is Portuguese.
