Arsenal have enjoyed a good season so far, but their campaign has not been without problems. A slow opening couple of games at the start of the season has left them playing catch-up ever since, whilst they’ve also had to contend with a few injury issues.
Undoubtedly the most severe of those occurred to Danny Welbeck. The Englishman looks set to miss much of the campaign through injury, and with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, that’s the last thing he needed.
Now, it’s quickly becoming clear that he could be on course for an Arsenal exit. According to the Times, Welbeck won’t be offered fresh terms at the club, which is in stark contrast to the treatment that players like Santi Cazorla were afforded.
In truth, though ruthless, it’s probably the right decision for the Gunners. Welbeck isn’t a regular at Arsenal, and when he has played, he’ss often found it tough to make an impact.
Still, it’s still sad news, and Arsenal fans online are taking it pretty hard. Indeed, lots of Arsenal supporters have taken to Reddit to discuss the news, and whilst most agree that it’s probably for the best, they’ll all be very sad to see him go. That just goes to show how popular Welbeck has become, especially given his Man Utd history.
