Arsenal’s new boss Unai Emery arrived at the Emirates Stadium in May after the departure of Arsene Wenger and he didn’t sell off many players because he was given a tight budget and among those that remained, include Danny Welbeck who has not shown any intention of leaving Arsenal even though he isn’t getting enough chances over the last few years.
The new season has begun and Unai Emery’s men had a rough start because they lost their first two matches but they have since then improved and Danny Welbeck is among the Arsenal boss’ top performing stars that have helped the North Londoners keep up with their fine winning streak.
Danny Welbeck isn’t in Unai Emery’s first eleven but the English international has had fantastic performances in the few chances he has got this season, he has scored four goals already in seven appearances for the gunners this season. Welbeck is currently in the final year of his current deal and the club offering him a new deal will probably depend on whether Unai Emery values him or not, but he did seem happy with Danny Welbeck after he scored a double against Brentford.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright was asked if he believes that Danny Welbeck deserves a new deal and he said that the English forward fully deserves to get one, he also outlined some key points why the North Londoners should not get rid of Welbeck as reported by the Mirror.
“Where he (Welbeck) is right now, behind Lacazette and Aubameyang, coming off the bench with his experience.” said Ian Wright.
“And the fact that he is capable of scoring goals against all types of opposition. He’s someone that I think Arsenal should definitely try to sign up for the long-term. He’s valuable to Arsenal.”
“I think he’s got eight to 10 goals in him over the course of a season. In the current climate, I don’t think Arsenal can afford to let someone like that go.”
