Danny Welbeck is unlikely to play a pivotal role at Arsenal this season if he remains at the club.
The striker is low down in the pecking order, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette ahead of him.
The former Manchester United hitman has struggled with injuries in the last few seasons, which has also hampered his progress at Arsenal.
At times, Welbeck has been the target of criticism from the club’s fans, but recent news about the England international has caused a divide between them.
According to the London Evening Standard, manager Unai Emery has told the forward that he will listen to offers if they come in before Thursday’s deadline.

The report claims that Welbeck is aware that he will have a bit-part role this season, so perhaps he will consider ending his four-year stint at the club.
After the reports emerged, some Arsenal fans had their say, with handfuls happy that the striker is on the chopping block, while others want him to stay.

We’ve had a problem with squad depth for too long. Selling welbeck is a bad idea.

It’s about time Danny Welbeck moved on and got himself regular game time he could do well at another club but he needs to move on and he would be worth the little transfer fee Arsenal would ask
