Should Arsenal accept £30M bid for Welbeck from league rivals?

Everton are claimed to be eyeing a £30 Million move to sign Danny Welbeck from Arsenal this summer, but would we sell?

The England international has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, but has always returned to fitness as a part of Arsene Wenger’s plans, and seems to be a player the French boss likes to work with.

£30 Million is not an amount to completely dismiss for a player who has only started 33 Premier League matches since joining in 2014 for a supposed £16 Million fee.

Welbeck could well turn out to be our new Theo Walcott, with his recurrent injury problems, and with the manager holding him in high regard, and he may well end up becoming a burden on our first-team squad.

Theo has come under scrutiny from fans over recent years, having struggled with form following injuries on a number of occasions, as well as with his injuries regularly ruling him out, but enjoyed a blistering season last year, and is still wanted out by many fans.

If Welbeck is prepared for that kind of stick and is willing to continue to work hard on and off the pitch like his team-mate, than maybe he could still prove a hit at the Emirates Stadium, but I can’t help but think that we could replace him this summer without too much hassle.

Is Welbeck an important squad member? Would Arsene Wenger consider selling him? Should we take the £30 Million and run? Do we have to consider Everton as a team we shouldn’t strengthen?

      Nope wenger wants to work on the squad he has so no one in no one out apart from the obvious deadwood! I knew we should of lost today coz wenger jacks off hard when we win a one off game then thinks he can win the CL lol Chelsea will sign another 2/3 players plus bakayoko didn’t even feature today and spurs will probs sign a couple so we will be relying on elneny n xhaka to defend and unlock parked buses for 50 game! Yeah right

      Sorry but wenger wants to work with the squad he has bcoz there that good apparently! I hope he’s playing games to do an under cover transfer but I won’t hold my breath coz he loves being to short he loves nearly’s and maybes and ifs and buts and I could signed or I should brought coz he’s a looser at heart

    That would be good value.
    However, Welbeck does not yet warrant urgent selling. These do: Debuchy, Jenkinson, Gabriel Walcott, Gibbs, Perez ( for his own good)

      Right on point sir, sell wellbeing? Sheer madness if it happens, when he plays he works hard for the team and he is a true professional in the old fashioned way, work hard for each other that’s all arsenal fans want

        Working hard should be a basic starting point rether than an exception. he couldnt trap a bag of cement

    At least welbeck works hard all game and always tracks back. Rather sell theo instead; he’s allergic to defending and tracking back.

    Besides, bet Danny wants it more than theo

      Yes, you r right. Walcot is not a speedy anymore. Better sell him now maybe 20-25mb before its too late.

        I agree, I would much rather see us sell Walcott. He’s overpaid and Welbeck does so much more for us on the pitch. Walcott is a ghost for 89 minutes and gets an occassional goal.

    Can we just sell Sanchas? If he doest want to sign then go. I just dont like his bad attitute on and off the field. Remember he always pissed off when he got sub off the field, and also some negative behavior on the bench while all camera is on him. I just dont like it and its not good for the team moral.

    Yes, last year he was very good. But look where we sit at the end. Lost a CL spot for the first time in many yrs when Sanchas was our main man. So if he wants to leave then fine. Lemar or Marez is okey at least they bring no negativity to the team.

      Alexis is our hardest working player. Always gives 110% on and off the field
      In training two days ago he was working out harder than anyone else.
      I don’t think there is any player on our side who give more of himself on the pitch than Alexis

    He’s a forward that never scores, or assists, so it’s an easy YES! People keep banging on about his work rate, saying he’s the best defensive forward around, but I thought forwards were meant to be…offensive? We saw it again today. Worked very hard, but offers no goal threat.

    Lacazette scored against Sevilla, because Welbeck missed the ball when shooting. Sanchez scored in the semi-final against City, because Welbeck missed the ball when shooting. Bellerin scored against Everton in our last league game, because Welbeck missed an open goal in the middle of the goal from only 2 yards away.

    Wake up people! He’s extremely injury-prone, and barely bang average!

      Isn’t the work rate of our players we often complain about. Welbeck should stay, there aren’t many better strikers out there that are available and at a reasonable price

      Danny Welbeck needs to stay back after training withh someone like Ian Wright and spend an hour or so on shooting practice!

    on another note, im a big fan of Sanchez, however if he continues to sulk or refuses to sign a contract sell him i dont care who too just use the money wisely

    We paid £16 million on him so £30 million would be fantastic

    Or £10 million plus Gueye
    (actually I don’t know how much Gueye is worth. Just guessing £20 million)

    I think Gueye and Xhaka would make a great partnership
    He is better than Coquelin
    He has Premier League experience
    By being strong defensively he can ease pressure on Xhaka to play defensively

      That’s will just be waste of money.How is Idrissa Gueye defensively better than Coquelin?I hate how some of our players aren’t respected.I’ve watched many defensive midfielders a lot of people here want us to sign and it just makes me laugh.

    I would sell Wellbeck and keep Perez.
    Wellbeck is hard worker, but he is not a clinical finisher nor a great dribbler.

    EVERY TIME WELBECK TURNS OUT IN ARSENAL COLORS WE GET 100% COMMITMENT FROM HIM MUCH THE SAME AS WE GET WITH SANCHEZ. HE DOES NEED TO FIND MORE COMPOSE IN FRONT OF GOAL – ALTHOUGH IT IS OFTEN A RESULT OF HIS SURGES THAT MANY OPPONENENTS FIND THEMSELVES PINNED BACK IN THEIR OWN HALF.

    WE LUCKY WE HAVE HIM AN IF EVER WE WERE TO SELL HIM TO THE OPPOSITION WE CULD BE VERY SORRY WE DID. WELBZ COMES DECORATED WITH HONORS TO HIGH HEAVEN. HE’S A CL WINNER.

    IN OPPOSITION HES MORE CAPABLE OF GIVING US HELL. WE’RE ABOUT TO SEE DANNY WELBECK IN HIS PRIME IN WHAT’S A NEW RAPID RESPONSE ARSENAL ATTACK. MY HOPE IS THAT OTHERS AT THIS CLUB INCLUDING FANS ARE ENTHUSIASTIC AS HE IS THAT HE IS GOING TO PROGRESS AND CONTINUE TO DO WELL

    ARSENAL & ENGLAND INTERNATIONAL WELBECK OWNS PRETTY MUCH EVERY MEDAL FOOTBALL TALENT HAS TO OFFER. IT WOULD BE A SHAME IF OUR TEAM MISSES OUT ON ALL HIS EXPERIENCE.

    I personally would like Mr Wenger to sell Welbeck, because Welbeck is not a prolific goal scorer and his overall game is not impressive. For example, he does not hold onto the ball for long periods and he tend to become less of a goal threat as the match progresses, his entire game seems to transform into a player who specialises into doing a containing job as oppose to attaching the opposition.

    Arsenal desperately need a dominant winger of the same mindset and ability as Sanchez. Now Adama traore is an explosive winger who possesses the same ability as Sanchez for the exception of goals. Therefore, Mr Wenger should buy Traore before the transfer window closes.

      Well when he played left forward today he was immense! This is the season of strong fast forwards coz everyone is playing 343 and welbeck can get up and down all day long with oxlade on the same side as him today we over ran Chelsea on our left and willian was a puny player bcoz of it! It’s not about him scoring it’s about having a mix of passes, athletes and finishers like welbeck to ozil to Lacazette goal! That’s how a team is formed! All wenger needs to do is sell deadwood and buy a cazorla replacement (seri) to unlock defenses when teams drop deep bcoz elneny n xhaka look good but not enough forwards passing along the ground and carvalho could play along Ramsey or coquelin I’d sell Wilshire so that’s 5 CM’s I’d say that’s a minimum requirement but arsenal need to take a loss on some of the deadwood coz there leaching the club

    Danny hard working Welbeck. Is all anyone has to say about him, we don’t need a hard working centre forward, we just need one that sticks the ball in the net. I don’t care if he just stands around the edge of the box scratching his balls if when he gits his chance he fcuking scores.

    Perez is Fenerbache bound, Welbeck for 30m is a good deal but I think tht will bloody strengthen Everton attack theyve alrd signed some good strikers.

    Welbeck is not the scorer type, but his presence is a nightmare for defenders. Tall, fast, powerful. I think if he get constant game time and less injuries, it will boost his scoring confidence.

    We need GOALS from our strikers and clearly Welbeck doesn’t offer that, 30m is a good deal for a striker who rarely scores. Take the money Arsene

    You don’t sell welbeck, on the assumption that lacazzette; is the awnser. The man is young-powerful plays a very undeniable roll especially when beating defenders, holding up the ball and he certainly is good in the air. You compare our squad with Chelsea and your see a great difference in size, its a marathon not a sprint, don’t drop you pantyhose to yet another rumour mill because arsenal happen to have a few strikers or have you forgot giroud just like the media before you.

    DW was endorsed by fergie then again by wenger only to now be doubted by fans.

    guess those fans know better than both managers?
