The return of Edurado would be a major boost for the Gunners admits Robin van Persie.
Eduardo has not played for Arsenal since suffering a broken leg against Birmingham back in February following a challenge by Martin Taylor.
Van Persie is looking forward to playing alongside him once again.
"He is really important," the Dutchman told Sky Sports News.
"We were all really unhappy with what happened but I think he dealt with it really well and showed a lot of maturity.
"If you look at his finishing record, we need him."
