EPL: Former Arsenal and Man United player wants out


A former Arsenal and Man United striker, Danny Welbeck is reportedly keen to leave Watford this summer window after they failed to escape relegation to the Championship.

The 29-year-old plied his trade with the Red Devils before moving to the Emirates Stadium where he battled injury and failed to fulfil his potential.

He is now set to leave Vicarage Road which has awaken interest from a number of Premier League clubs because he still wants to play in the English topflight.

However, The Sun journalist, Justin Allen reports that Southampton are part of the clubs interested in the signature of Danny Welbeck and are willing to pay a cut-price of £5.5 million.

It is reported that Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is a big fan of the English striker and will seek to work with him after a year’s spell with Watford.

However, Watford are expected to have a gentleman agreement with the player as they will not force him into relegating with the club but his suitors must be willing to meet his release clause before any move can happen.

Danny Welbeck has got a big experience of the English Premier League and that will play a role in helping him to succeed wherever he finds himself in the coming season.
