Arsenal to Offer Welbeck New Contract to Quench Interests


It is understood by one of the top media outlets that Arsenal are planning to give a new contract to one of its players so as to quench attempts from other teams.

In an update we made here yesterday, we talked of reported interest from Newcastle United who want to add Danny Welbeck to their ranks in the summer.

It was claimed that the Gunners could let the English international go when his contract expires at the end of the season since he is struggling to get regular playtime as a result of incessant injury problems as well as competition in his department.

Now, news contrary to that has surfaced and the Mirror states that the North London side is weighing a deal to keep him at the club beyond this season.

This is to avert interests from clubs like Everton, West Ham United and Everton who are all said to have made an inquiry over the availability of the striker.

This could be true after the costly mistake they made in letting Aaron Ramsey agree to a pre-contract offer that will see him join Juventus for free in June.

Arsenal offering Welbeck a new contract is one thing and him accepting to agree to the terms is another.

It is uncertain if the former Manchester United man would want to stay as third-choice striker behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

Welbeck is currently undergoing rehabilitation as part of his comeback from a November-sustained injury that completely ruled him out of the campaign.
