Deal Close: Arsenal To Offer Welbeck New Contract


Premier League giants Arsenal are considering whether or not to offer striker Danny Welbeck a new deal amidst the transfer interest from other teams in the top flight of English football.

According to the publication from popular English media portal Daily Mirror, the Gunners want to offer him a new deal despite the fact that he’s currently out injured.

Danny Welbeck suffered a season-ending injury towards the end of last year when he sustained a serious ankle injury while he was playing for the Gunners in the Europa League.

The England international star suffered a serious ankle problem in the group stage game with Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon at home.

His injury overshadowed the goalless draw with the Portuguese outfit as Arsenal sealed their spot in the knockout stage of the competition.

Without Danny Welbeck in the Arsenal squad due to the injury, Arsenal have progressed to the last four of the competition.

The Gunners face a two-legged semifinal tie with Spanish La Liga giants Valencia at the start of the new month.

Welbeck has two months left on his current deal with the Gunners amidst interest from other Premier League clubs like West Ham United, Everton and Crystal Palace.

South London club Crystal Palace wanted to sign Welbeck in January before his injury blocked a potential deal.
