All the Arsenal transfer rumours so far have been about Aaron Ramsey, who is out of contract this summer, but no-one seems to be worried about losing Danny Welbeck, who has been arguably performing much better than the Welshman this season.
Welbeck’s contract is also up in June, and according to today’s Guardian, Crystal Palace are keen to take him across London in January. They reported……
Crystal Palace are set to be active in the January transfer market and fancy Danny Welbeck for £10m to solve their Christian Benteke-shaped goalscoring problem. Arsenal are willing to cash in as ‘Dat Guy Welbz’ is out of contract in the summer and they are already set to lose out on a transfer fee for Aaron Ramsey, set to join up with Ivan Gazidis at Milan.
This is probably the first time in many many years that Welbeck has been injury-free and actually scoring goals in the first half of the season. Should this be the time to cash in?
I would say well both him and Ramsey, put the money in the kitty for the summer transfers, and bring Reiss Nelson back from Hoffenheim. The BBC reported…..
The 18-year-old has scored five goals in six league appearances for Hoffenheim, bagging his first just 14 minutes into his debut.
Only one other foreign teenager has ever scored more goals in a Bundesliga season than Nelson, and that was Ousmane Dembele who’s six goals in 2016-17 for Borussia Dortmund earned him a £96.8m move to Barcelona.
I think he has surely dne enough to prove he can make it at the highest level, and if we have to lose Welbeck and Ramsey I don’t see why Nelson couldn’t come back and fill in with ease.
What do you think?
