Before Arsene Wenger left, the club found itself in a situation where there were too many undesirable contract situations. It started with Ozil and Sanchez before the latter left during the January transfer window.
Ozil penned down a long-term deal that will keep him at the club till 2021. Now in the summer, the club is in the same situation with Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere. In a few coming months, the same could be said of Danny Welbeck.
The England striker has just over a year left on his current deal, which is set to expire in the summer of 2019.
His situation has been addressed by the club as he is not one of the main cogs in the club’s hunt for successes.
He is a crucial option from the bench and does offer versatility when he plays on the wings. Although he is an impact player when he plays, it would be better to sort out his future before it’s too late.
The following are some few reasons why it’s best for the club to let him go.
We can do better
As an Arsenal fan, I like Danny Welbeck. His work rate on and off the ball is amazing. His return has also been good as he reached double figures in goals scored for the 2017/18 season. He led the charge for Arsene with his surprisingly clever plays. His season took a turn for the worse when he started getting injuries. Our lack of backups and a flurry of injuries meant we had to use him even when he wasn’t a hundred percent.
All this aside, it is my opinion that our club can get a better caliber striker than him. We pride ourselves on being a world-class team and as such we should get world-class players. Which Welbeck is not! Lucas Perez is a better all-around striker than Welbeck and as such, why not let Welbeck go and give the Spaniard a chance to prove himself?
I know I am not the only one with this view as popular betting tips and predictions sites were predicting him to leave the club mid-season.
Eddie Nketiah and Alex Iwobi
When you envision a striker, we all see goals. It may be unfair, but, Danny Welbeck is not a goal machine. His inconsistency in front of goal has been surprising and a characteristic of his going back to his Manchester United days.
Emery should take a gamble and employ these two youngsters as the backups. They are just as fierce and determined as Welbeck. The two youngsters exhibit their athleticism combined with a knack for scoring goals. The arrival of both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan should help the two youngsters develop into fine attacking talents for the gunners.
Although Arsenal football club is successful commercially, it wouldn’t hurt to expand the transfer kitty. Welbeck is currently valued at £ 10 million but with today’s market inflation prices, we could easily sell him for double or triple that value. The funds from this sale could then be used to fund a move for Sokratis or put the club in a better position to invest in proper transfer targets.
