Welbeck's injury

England manager Roy Hodgson looks to have put to bed any uncertainty concerning how long it will take Danny Welbeck to recover from his current knee injury, expressing fears that the striker won’t be ready in time for Euro 2016.

Hodgson’s comments imply that Welbeck’s troubles are far worse than Arsenal have publicly let on, with his information apparently that the ex-Manchester United forward might not be fully fit for another six months.

“Welbeck bothers me now,” Hodgson said, as per The Guardian.

“He has already been out for me since March so that’s over four months already. And now I hear it’s another six months, so I can only hope that Danny recovers a bit quicker and hits the ground running."

That’s bad news for the Gunners no matter which way you look at it, and it certainly poses another question over Arsene Wenger’s decision not to buy a striker this summer.

Benzema admission

Sticking with that subject, Karim Benzema has confirmed that there was nothing in the transfer rumours linking him with a Real Madrid exit this summer.

Arsenal were mentioned frequently regarding the possible purchase of the striker, but he’s now moved to play down such rumours, insisting that he wants to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Henry and the transfer window

Last but not least Thierry Henry has revealed who he believes might be the best purchase of the summer transfer window, and it isn’t Petr Cech.

The Gunners signed the Chelsea stopper in the midst of much fanfare, but it’s Swansea City’s acquirement of Andre Ayew that has impressed Henry the most. The diminutive forward joined the Liberty Stadium side on a free transfer.
