Danny Welbeck has had some horrendous luck since he swapped old Trafford for The Emirates back in summer 2014. Consistent injury problems have seen him stutter and fail to nail down a starting role during his time in London. His latest blow, a horrific ankle injury suffered against Sporting, has seen him undergo two operations and he could have played his last game in an Arsenal shirt.
Danny Welbeck has undergone surgery for a second time on his broken right ankle, Arsenal have confirmed.

The England international, who’s been valued at £13.5 million by the good people over at Transfermarkt, Ihas become a vital squad player at Arsenal and has scored 32 times for the club since his move. However, with his current injury supposedly sidelining him until the end of the season and his contract expiring in the summer, his days in red and white could be coming to an end.
Unai Emery could take up an option to extend his deal by a further 12 months, although that could be a ploy to see the club benefit financially from his departure, especially seeing as The Star have been linking him with a move to London rivals Crystal Palace in January. The striker’s latest injury may have written off a January transfer but that’s not to say that the 27-year-old won’t be on the move next summer.

Poor bloke, get fit soon Danny. Rumours were he was going to join Palace in January. Think he would have been a great signing for us if true. Hope this does not end his career.

Think he’s played his last game in an Arsenal shirt. Can’t see him getting an new contract at the end of the season

The Gunners will be hoping Welbeck can get back to fitness and get back in the side as soon as possible, with a lot of fans hoping they haven’t seen the last of him.
