Danny Welbeck has been plagued by injury since he joined from Manchester United in 2014, but ended the season well for Arsenal, and we could be blessed by his ability next term.
The forward has shown glimpses of serious talent over the years, but just as he hits top gear, he has fallen foul of injury previously.
Welbeck finished the season well, and was even compared to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry after his performance in the FA Cup final with Chelsea recently, and could be eyed as our answer to a role which has been a weakness in our side for some time.
Former team-mate of Thierry, Martin Keown, was the man to compare him to the club’s all-time goalscorer.
‘I said to Danny Welbeck afterwards that at times he reminded me of Thierry Henry,’ Keown said.
‘He was too quick for Chelsea and kept stretching David Luiz into those channels.
‘Welbeck gave Arsenal extra energy in both directions.’
Our club looks likely to sign young Nigerian Henry Onyekuru this summer, who will likely play a minor role in our squad for his debut season, and it remains to be seen whether we will invest in a big-named striker also. Judging by previous seasons, that will not happen, but maybe Welbeck can will be able to make up for that failure.
The former Manchester United youth product is recognised as a talent by Arsene Wenger, and Jose Mourinho even admitted that he would not have sold the 26 year-old if he had been in charge at the time of his departure.
He has still yet to meet his full potential since joining our club, but should he stay fit for the new season, he could play a HUGE part in our campaign.
Can any of you see what he brings to our attacking line? Can you recognise any similarities between him and Thierry? Will Arsenal invest in a top striker this summer?
