The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been urging their club to sell England striker, Danny Welbeck. The 27-year-old has come in for criticism as of late as he’s failed to live up to the standards set at the club by his rival forward’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. Welbeck started yesterday as the club beat Stoke 3-0 but failed to impress the fans who have called for his sale.
Welbeck faces an uphill batter this summer as he’s looking unlikely to travel to the World Cup with England and very likely to be leaving Arsenal. On the international front, Harry Kane’s return to fitness could force the ex-Man United striker off the plane to Russia whilst at club level, Laca and Auba’s arrival at the Emirates mean it’s hard to see a place for the 27-year-old in Wenger’s starting line-up.
It’s currently Welbeck’s fourth season in London after swapping Old Trafford for The Emirates although it’s hard to see him continuing his career in North London given his failure to take chances he’s been given in the first team. Gabonese international, Aubameyang is currently cup-tied in the Europa League meaning Welbeck started both legs against AC Milan, but now Lacazette has returned from injury it’s hard to find a place for the lack-lustre striker. Arsenal host CSKA Moscow on Thursday in the Europa League and it will be a shock if the 27-year-old finds himself starting in one of the club’s biggest games of the season
You can read our local Gunners’ verdict here:
Most frustrating thing is that we have the makings of a good team.
Attacking options of Lacazette, Aubameyang, Ozil, Mkhitaryan, is a good start.
Need to sell Welbeck, and use the money to buy a quick 1v1 winger and we have decent options.

danny welbeck is trash
hate to sell him because he is decent off the bench but wow is he low quality for first team

Just need to sell of one Welbeck and Iwobi and one body in midfield and add proper quality in there. I think Gk and Cb will be sorted early in summer.

It would be crazy to not sell Welbeck this summer. Age is right and wage not too big to shift.
