Danny Welbeck at Arsenal Might Be Something Good

After Olivier Giroud injured himself against Everton, Arsenal knew it was important to replace their main front man with someone who could do a similar job. After many seasons of their players being injured and in return losing the title, Arsenal have stepped forward and made an immense investment in the squad for the charge at the title this year. Because Manchester United now have an amazing depth of players on their squad, especially after the addition of Radamel Falcao on loan on deadline day, there would not have been any space left for the young England international Danny Welbeck.

Before signing for Arsenal for 16 million pounds, Welbeck worked his way up through United youth academy and made his professional debut for United in 2008 going on to score 20 goals in 90 appearances. It is clear that Welbeck is at the point in his career where he needs constant game time to improve. He is young and with the amount of potential he has, he should not be wasting it on United’s bench. This is probably the main reason why the young striker took the opportunity to move to Arsenal where playing time would be easier to come by.

Giroud has a similar playing style to that of Welbeck, so it should not be hard for the Arsenal players to adapt. The same goes for Welbeck as it should be easy fitting into the current Arsenal squad once given the green light by Arsene Wenger. Wenger is a coach who is well-known for giving young players a lot of playing time in the league. Hopefully, he does the same with Welbeck.

Wenger is an experienced coach and knows how to manager the careers of young players. Welbeck at Arsenal under the management of Wenger could be one of the best decisions in the Premier League this season.
