Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern may have gone into this transfer deadline day hoping to secure the signature of Radamel Falcao, but now it looks as though they will have to settle for Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck.
The Express are amongst those reporting that the England international is set to undergo a medical with the Gunners ahead of a one-year-loan deal.
New Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has made Welbeck surplus to requirements at Old Trafford before completing the shock loan capture of Falcao from Monaco earlier today.
United have already allowed Javier Hernandez to leave the club with the Mexican joining Real Madrid on a season-long loan.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been on the hunt for a striker following the injury suffered by Olivier Giroud.
The Frenchman looks to have settled on Welbeck having been linked with former Tottenham forward Jermaine Defoe, Swansea City’s Wilfried Bony and Sevilla’s Carlos Bacca.
