Danny Welbeck to leave Arsenal on a free transfer


Danny Welbeck could have played his final match for the Gunners

The striker is looking likely to join Aaron Ramsey in leaving on a free transfer next summer.

While his current deal expires in June 2019, Arsenal have no intention to offer Danny Welbeck a new contract.ย The club haven’t set a timeline for how long the 28-year-old will be out of action but it is feared he may miss the rest of the season.

The 28-year-old has suffered a severe ankle injury and is out of the squad for the long run as the look of things. The English forward required two rounds of surgery in November, hence it’s very likely that there will his future appearances in the Arsenal colours are in doubt.

Welbeck joined Arsenal on a five-year deal from Manchester United in 2014 and has made 126 appearances during his time in North London littered with injury problems, missing over 80 matches for his club.

He spent six months out during the 2015-2016 season with a knee injury before another lengthyย spell out between May 2016 and January 2017.

He made 43 appearances in Arsene Wenger’s final season as a manager last term, but spent a month out between September and October with a hip problem, and October and November with a groin strain.

The potential departures ofย both Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey would also allow space for the club’s promising youngsters such as Reiss Nelson, who is currently at Hoffenheim on loan, to break into the first team.

Arsenal will travel to Manchester United on Wednesday night bidding for their first Premier League win at Old Trafford in more than a decade.
