Arsenal are set for a serious battle to keep Gunners star at the Emirates Stadium with latest reports suggesting Premier League rivals, Everton, are monitoring Danny Welbeck’s situation ahead of a potential move to sign the forward, after missing out on him in the summer.
This is according to the Mirror, who write that the Merseyside club are ‘keeping tabs’ on the striker’s situation.
And According to their report, the England International is still ‘no nearer’ to agreeing a new Gunners contract than before.
Everton were reportedly keen on on landing the attacker in the summer but failed to land their target. It makes sense that they would reignite that interest now, considering Welbeck’s impressive form since the start of the season.
If Welbeck doesn’t sign a new deal, then he can also speak with any overseas club over signing a pre-contract agreement from January. If Arsenal want to hold onto the striker, they only have three months to ensure his head isn’t turned.
It’s unlikely Unai Emery will have any problems with Welbeck’s commitment this season, either way. The England man has always shown a willingness to give everything on the pitch, regardless of if he’s starting matches, coming off the bench, or whatever else is going on in the background. We’ll see what happens with his contract situation though.
