As reported on SBI this morning, Cody Arnoux is close to signing with Everton, becoming their second transfer of the summer (not including Jo’s loan extension). You may remember that fellow American Anton Peterlin was the first. Arnoux is a 5-foot-10 Wake Forest striker. He was the first player in school history to eclipse 40 pts. in a single season, earning 42 in 2008. He led the team with 17 goals, scoring 16 in the last 16 games of the season. He was All-ACC first team, All-American second team, and a Hermann semi-finalist. He decided to skip last year’s draft to stay in school, but has decided to pass on his last year of eligiblity to join fellow Americans Anton Peterlin and Tim Howard at Everton.
This is pretty exciting news. Let’s hope Peterlin and Arnoux can find the field in their rookie seasons at Everton Amerton.
