Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck is set to leave the Emirates on a free transfer when his contract expires over the summer, as per Sky Sports.
Welbeck joined the North London club in a £16 million deal from the Red Devils on the summer transfer deadline in 2014. The England striker so far with Arsenal, has netted 16 goals in 88 Premier League appearances, with his five goals in 28 appearances last season his best single season return.
With available options upfront for the Gunners, it’s believed Arsenal have no plans to offer the Englishman a new contract before it expires at the end of the season.
Welbeck is out of action for now as he’s currently nursing a long-term ankle injury and underwent two rounds of surgery in November, making him a doubt to make return this season, meaning his last outing may have be his final game in Gunners’ Whites and Red shirt.
At Old Trafford, Welbeck registered 92 Premier League appearances between 2018-14 and netted 20 goals. He is also capable of play down the left wing where he has been doing so for the Gunners and the England team.
The future of Anthony Martial with the Old Trafford club still look bleak and he has constantly been linked with a move away from the club over the past 12 months amid speculation that Jose Mourinho is not a fan. However, the Frenchman is having a good run of games under Mourinho.
A move for Welbeck, given that the England forward is a former player and would be available for free is certainly one the Mancunians should look forward to.
