Danny Welbeck set for return after the international break

Published 6 Comments

Danny Welbeck has frustratingly been out of action for Arsenal since April, but according to Aresene Wenger he is set for a return to the Gunners squad after the international break.

Welbeck picked up a knee-injury last season that ruled him out of the FA Cup final and Wenger originally expected the problem to clear up in a matter of days.

However the former Manchester United forward has endured a frustrating time on the sideline that kept him out of the clubs pre-season tour and only saw him return to training two weeks ago.

"Welbeck is progressing well and should be back after the international break.": He said.


Welbeck's last appearance came in the 0-0 draw with Chelsea on April 26 and he will offer the Gunners another option in a forward line that has failed to produce so far this season.

The forward will be hoping to improve on his eight goals in 34 appearances in his debut campaign at the Emirates and will be hoping for the opportunity to stake his claim as a centre forward in North London.

He initially struggled to find the target for Arsenal when playing as a striker last season before being moved into a wide position upon the return of Olivier Giroud, where he goals dried up further.

He has showcased his eye for goal for England, scoring five goals in 15 appearances over 2014 while playing predominantly as a striker and Arsenal fans will be hoping to see his form on the international stage transfer to North London.

Arsenal fans, can Danny Welbeck bring more firepower to the Gunners' front-line? Have your say below!
