Danny Welbeck has to be sacrificed if Emery wants to build a new Arsenal

Arsenal are open to offers for out of favour striker Danny Welbeck according to The Evening Standard.

What’s the story?

The Manchester United youth product headed to Arsenal in the summer of 2014 and went to make 80 Premier League appearances under Arsene Wenger, scoring 15 goals.

However, it appears the England international is not part of new boss Unai Emery’s plans after informing the striker that he will not be a regular and the club will listen to offers.

According to the article, Everton, Southampton and Bournemouth are interested in securing his services as the Gunners look to lower their wage bill, with Welbeck on a reported £115,000 per week.

Time to sell

Welbeck only has one year left on his deal so Arsenal can’t command a massive fee for the World Cup player.

It’s clear that Emery prefers Alex Iwobi as backup after offering him a new contract this summer, and Arsenal need to offset the £71million they have spent on transfers this summer.

He is valued at £13.5million on Transfermarkt and if Emery is really looking to rebuild the Arsenal squad, it’s time to bid farewell to bit-part players like Welbeck.
