Danny Welbeck has returned form international duty with England and will undergo his first training session as an Arsenal player having moved house from Manchester to London according to the Telegraph.

The striker completed a £16 million move to the Gunners on deadline day but his debut for his new club has been delayed because of the international break, however he is in line to start against Manchester City.


The Telegraph report that it's been a frantic few days for the former Manchester United man. On Monday it was his brace that helped England get their Euro 2016 campaign up and running with a win over Switzerland. He was pictured flying home from Basel yesterday - with his Manchester United washbag in hand - and according to the Telegraph moved house down south ahead of his first training session with his new Arsenal team-mates today.

It was noticeable at the time of Welbeck's move to Arsenal that no public statement was made by boss Arsene Wenger, prompting suggestions that he may have been signed behind the Frenchman's back on deadline day.


However the Telegraph say that Wenger has rung Welbeck, who earns £110,000-per-week in north London, having a lengthy discussion with him about his role at Arsenal, and promising to give him his chance as the club's main striker. 

That could spell trouble for Olivier Giroud who has led the line for the Gunners over the last two seasons - however the paper adds that Wenger is willing to offer him a new contract in order to assure the former Montpellier ace that he is still in his plans. Theo Walcott, who also has designs on the striker spot at Arsenal, is also set to be handed a new deal.

Pecking order

Youngster Yaya Sanogo will fall down the pecking order following Welbeck's arrival, but will still be given a chance to show what he can do this season.

While Welbeck gears up to make his debut for Arsenal, the man who replaced him at Manchester United, Radamel Falcao, should make his debut against QPR at Old Trafford this weekend too.

There should also be debuts for Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind, who all joined Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
