We have been told that Arsene Wenger has £35 million or more to spend strengthening the Arsenal squad, and so speculation is rife as to which player or players might be on their way to the Emirates in the January transfer window. The latest rumour concerns the Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao.
23-year old Damiao has played for the Brazilian club Internacional since being promoted into the first team in 2012 and helping them to win the Copa Libertadores.

Ronaldo has scored 60 goals this season in just 55 games for Real Madrid, while Bendtner has managed 66 in his whole club career of 234 matches.
Bendtner nearly got Denmark a draw against Portugal with two headed goals, the second one a peach, but substitute Silvestre Varela finally did what Ronaldo couldn’t and won the game for Portugal. .......Read the full article here

Ahead of England’s crucial World Cup Qualifier tonight, Croatia’s manager Slaven Bilic has come out in support of the Arsenal striker Eduardo Da Silva and denies that he is capable of “deceiving the referee” as claimed by UEFA this week in their ruling which resulted in a two-game ban for Eduardo.
“Eduardo is a complete man, a complete person,” said Bilic. “He’s great as a player, great as a person, great as a father. I can say it because I’ve known him since he was 17.
“When you know you are right, the things that anyone writes or says about you can’t harm you at all. It can only motivate you more. He knows that he is 100 per cent honest. He knows that he did nothing wrong.” .......Read the full article here
