Newcastle favourites for Danny Welbeck with Everton and Fulham next

Goodbye Danny?

It was always on the cards that Danny Welbeck would have to leave this season as he is entering the last year of his contract, and he really has little chance of ousting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette from the starting line-up this season. Arsenal also have Henrik Mhkitaryan and Lucas Perez as backup as a winger or striker if the English international leaves, and if the reports are true about Iwobi being given an extension then Welbeck could surely be surplus to requirements.

Looking at the opening betting for Welbeck’s next club, it is Newcastle that are 4/1 favourites with both Everton and Fulham joint second faves at 5/1. Southampton and Watford are just behind at 6/1 with 10/1 bar. If you are thing of betting on any of them then take advantage of the bookies offers for the new season. You can see all of them at SportsBettingDay. Personally I think he will go to Everton as they could do very well this coming season…

So the betting is very open, and I was not surprised to read this TeamTalk report today….

TEAMtalk understands Newcastle United are ready to offer Danny Welbeck a chance to kick-start his career on Tyneside after it emerged he was not part of Unai Emery’s long-term plans at Arsenal.

Newcastle are low on transfer funds and are ready to make a loan offer to Arsenal, which would see them take on Welbeck’s sizeable wage packet which is in excess of £100,000-a-week.

Arsenal would ideally like to get money for the 27-year-old, who went to the World Cup finals with England, but the interest is relatively low given his poor injury record, meaning few are looking to take a chance on a huge financial package for the former Manchester United ace.

Everton have also been linked, but Newcastle hope that if Welbeck does move on-loan, they could be an appealing option to the player and also Arsenal.

Both are teams that could give Welbeck a chance of regular first team football, and if he really is available for just 15m then there could be a few more offers before the end of the window…

Where do you think Danny will go?

    IDK but all the best for Welbeck if he leaves, since he has been a hardworker in the field for Arsenal

    Maybe Perez would catch up as soon as he gets a real interest from another club? Nketiah and Nelson are waiting to take their positions

      We have already accepted a loan + option to buy bid for Welbeck from Newcastle as well as Everton’s bid which is around £18m.
      It’s now up to Welbeck to choose which team he prefers.We can still decide against selling him but

      Emery is not keen on selling or keeping.Its more like he’s fine with him staying but if a good offer comes in we’d sell.Now it’s up to Welbeck to choose.

      Having said that about five different EPL teams are interested and we might receive more bids for him so this is not a done deal in any way for the two teams.Ospina will soon follow.

        You are not making sense Kev today, welbeck has one year left on his contract isn’t it? Then loan plus option to buy, what or whom would they be buying him from?

    I know I’m one of a few who thinks DW is a great player but as a winger he works that left wing really really well, I’m not one for using players out of position but DW if he can except being a winger rather then a striker he will do so much better in his career and not many good LW are around, it’s a bit like Walcott he was a lousy striker but in his hey days when he was a winger he was a great provider and scored more goals then when he was a striker and DW has so much more to offer than TW

    1. gotanidea

      He has to improve his dribbling skill first to be a good winger. Currently he is good as a target man or maybe as a wingback

      Walcott used to be braver in taking on the defenders, but his guts is decreasing as he gets older. Welbeck and other fast attackers have similar tendency, probably because of they lost their pace

      1. Tas

        gotanidea I think his realy good with dribbling I realy do specialy on the line, his downfall is his finishing is not what you call a top strikers dream and not crossing early for an assist

    Spots around the first team are too valuable to leave for a player that needs injury to give him his chance. I’d rather see a youngster given Danny’s spot but I feel we need to look abroad. I like Danny allot, he’s a great lad and he’s a real trier. But its a valuable spot he holds and its over a hundred grand a week in wages, Juventus were only paying Lichtensteiner 45 grand a week, that tells us how messed up we’ve been on the wages front. I would also say Ozil is not worth over three hundred grand weekly, but he does deserve to be our highest paid player after Auba, Mkhit and Ramsey, it was the free contract that gave him his bargaining power so I wouldn’t really worry too much on it.

    We could get a top young hopeful looking to make a name for himself with Danny’s place, no time for sentimentality. Look at the way Pep tackled these types of conundrums, young, dynamic, fast, showing early promise, and they all took the bit by their teeth. Liv done likewise, sort of, but without the depth, these two are the early front runners. Danny must go, Campbell must go, Perez gets one season, so does Iwobi in my opine and thy’d better make the most of it. When Emery is thinking on these players, the ones around the peripheral of first team, this is what gets me hopeful for a better tomorrow.

    TBH, I don’t care where Welbeck goes but it is important to get the very best price for him. But for his many injury absences he would fetch 25-30 mill, at only 27 with many England caps and a good goal ratio for England. HIS UNRELIABLE FITNESS HAS BOTH COST HIM AND US. But it is right that he leaves; nice guy , just not good enough, sadly!

      I find it funny that Arsenal signed Danny Welbeck for £16m from Man Utd and you’d want as much as £25m-£30m for him when he hasn’t improved over here to command such a fee even in today’s market.
      He’s become more injury prone tbh and I doubt there’s any team that would pay that much for him when he’s still the same Welbeck we know from Utd if not worse.

      1. Innit

        £16 mil about 5 years ago
        Inflation
        £16 million then is diff to £16 mil now
        Transfer fees go up for someone still in his 20s
        Also, he has had more PL experience and is an England intetnational

        1. kev

          It just doesn’t work like that.Performances also count.Why would a team actually bid £25m for Danny Welbeck even considering today’s market?At most he’s worth £20m.You can even say he should’ve cost a lot more when we were buying him.
          He has not improved so that plus inflation should make him worth at max £20m.

      2. jon fox

        kev , What I actually DID say and which was quite clear to those who bothered PROPERLY reading my post was, “But for his many injury absences he would fetch 25-30 mill.” You are clearly not au fait with plain English or have deliberately chosen to misconstrue my post. I do NOT think we can get 25-30 mill for him and indeed I SAID PRECISELY THAT. Please do not take me too task for YOU being either unable or unwilling (and I incline to the latter) to understand plain unambiguous English. The market has also much increased for transfer fees, during Welbeck’s time, as you well know. All in all your reply to my post was nonsense.

        1. kev

          Well sorry I didn’t take note but you really do speak nonsense at times.I find it funny tbh.Youre not the only one though.Many do too just that it’s a waste of time putting up with them.

          1. jon fox

            Most of us, myself and you included, speak nonsense at times. We are passionate fans and lapses of common sense are to be expected as we are ALL only human too. You are a bright man though, so surely it is not too much to ask that you fully read anyones post before taking them to task. By all means disagree but please , at least try to disagree with what they have actually written. Ok?

            1. kev

              You’re really an interesting person you know?Just that at times some of you here are a bit harsh.It doesn’t pain me to apologise for not reading your comment well and clearly you can see that I did apologize.
              Well back to the next article then!

      3. Focus

        DW is worth more than 20 mil in today’s market if Danny Ings is valued at 25mil by Liverpool.

    Danny boy should leave. We already have Perez who is way more clinical, fast and less injury prone..Danny is not Arsenal level at all and congratulations to man utd for playing us

      1. RSH

        Guendouzi most likely comes from his recommendations. Mavro for a fact does. One hasn’t kicked a ball, the other I can count on my finger the number of games he has played. You need to be patient

    This is good news as i still think that Arsenal are saving for a big name in the end. Almost ready to compete. All what we need to do is to find a proper star on the wings.

    There was one game when Danny was the only one to sign autographs for young fans. Very good of you and good luck with the future.

    upon arrival it appeared welbz and wilshere had already a bond established and upon falling to injury welbz seemed somewhat lost. he could opt to return to north-west with everton and find form and become a nightmare for prem defences.

    but asked if he’s any less threat than r.sterling id say in the final third both offer much the same threat. if he gives one more season we’d pose a relentless attackin option that at the very least would secure lengthy runs in all the domestic cups and he’s athletism is enough to see us do well in europa too. our expectations are realistically third – although i expect he could help us to even do better and secure 3rd.

    he’s better than christopher wray and he stands – if ability is any measure – to do better than wiltord if he gets his act together. y’see not everybody in successful arsenal teams turns out to be pundits dear but a player contribution can still be valuable all the same.
