Does Danny Welbeck deserve to be in the England squad? 0

Posted on September 10, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has vowed to keep working hard and prove he merits a place in the England squad. The former Manchester United striker appeared as a substitute in the Three Lions 2-1 home defeat by Spain.

In fact, he was highly unfortunate not to equalise in stoppage-time when he saw a goal harshly disallowed for what looked like a non-existent foul on Spain goalkeeper David De Gea.

In England squad by default

Welbeck is a decent attacking option for England boss Gareth Southgate. However, he almost just a default option for the Three Lions boss, who currently has a dearth of quality attacking cover for first-choice striker Harry Kane.

Unai Emery needed first Arsenal victory 0

It is fair to say that Arsenal’s display in their 3-1 win over West Ham on Saturday afternoon was not perfect. However, the most important thing for the Gunners was that new boss Unai Emery recorded his first win as head coach.

Already rather strangely, some are asking questions about whether the team are producing anything different from Arsene Wenger’s team. There are similarities in the fact the Gunners are still vulnerable in defence, but you can see that Emery is attempting to change the way the team plays the game.

It seems that it is far more likely that there will exits from Arsenal rather than signings on transfer deadline day of the 2018 summer window. There has been talk of the Gunners signing Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele, mainly on a loan deal. However, it seems that the deal is unlikely to happen, with just a few hours left until the deadline of 5 PM.

Players who could leave

Arsenal has plenty of players who are considered surplus to requirements. Spanish striker Lucas Perez has signed for West Ham for a fee of around £5million. The 29-year-old struggled for first-team football since his 2016 arrival from Deportivo La Coruna.

According to the Metro, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey could be set to leave the north London club with less than a week until the transfer window shuts. The report suggests that both Chelsea and Liverpool are interested in signing the Wales international before transfer deadline next Thursday.

Contract talks dragging on

Ramsey is now in the last year of his Arsenal contract, therefore the midfielder could leave as a free agent next summer. Reportedly, talks have been ongoing between the midfielder’s representatives and the club for some time.

Should Arsenal keep Danny Welbeck this summer? 0

According to TalkSPORT, Arsenal are ready to sell England international striker Danny Welbeck for £15million, with Everton reportedly interested in signing the former Manchester United star this summer.

Welbeck has less than a year left on his contract in north London, but the Gunners are not desperate to offer the forward a new deal. That means either keeping him until the end of his contract or selling him for a relatively low price this summer.

According to the rumour mill, Everton Football Club are interested in acquiring the services of Danny Welbeck. The Englishman has certainly had an interesting journey throughout the course of his career after initially being positioned as the next big thing for Manchester United, only for things to not quite work out that way. Instead, he made the switch to Arsenal where he currently resides, and it’ll be interesting to see whether or not Unai Emery considers him to be a priority.

Arsenal duo face uncertain futures 0

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal duo David Ospina and Danny Welbeck face uncertain futures at the north London club. The pair has yet to return from World Cup duty after representing Colombia and England respectively in Russia.

The pair have never convinced at Arsenal

Neither of the pair has ever convinced that they can retain their starting roles in the Gunners team. David Ospina was Petr Cech’s backup last season and was only really thrown in when the former Chelsea ‘keepers form suffered a wobble.

We’re on the verge of the 2018 FIFA World Cup kicking off in Russia, and doesn’t that just sound great to say out loud? We’ve been waiting for years for another instalment of football’s greatest tournament to take place, and there’s really no argument to be made against the fact that it’s the biggest event in all of sport. So then, as opposed to focusing on the negative side of football which we tend to do far too often, we’re going to run down the nine Arsenal players who will be representing the club this summer.

Is Welbeck a dark horse? 0

Posted on June 09, 2018 by Harry Kettle

When Danny Welbeck was announced as one of the members of England’s 2018 FIFA World Cup squad, there was a lot of moaning and groaning from around the nation. A lot of people felt like he didn’t deserve to be in that kind of position, and others felt there were just better options available. However, no matter which way you turn, there’s no denying that the 27-year-old is a proven commodity when it comes to international football.

Posted on May 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Gareth Southgate has officially revealed his England squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and if you’re an Arsenal fan, there’s some good news and there’s some bad news. The bad news is that Jack Wilshere hasn’t been selected, whereas the good news lies in the fact that Danny Welbeck will be on the plane to Russia.
