Arsenal could purchase an alternative for Welbeck

Arsenal‘s Director of Soccer Raul Sanllehi suggests the club may have to dip into the January transfer market following Danny Welbeck was side-lined with a critical injury.

The 27-year-old attacker was in fine sort for the Gunners beneath Unai Emery this season but suffered a broken ankle in the Europa League and subsequently experienced two functions.

Sanllehi admitted that with Welbeck unlikely to be back again in motion right before his contract expires at the conclude of the season, they may have to take into consideration other alternatives.

With Emery telling reporters that Eddie Nketiah will be an fast stopgap in Welbeck’s absence, Sanllehi added: “That is completely something unplanned.

“Of course, that would make you take into consideration matters. I am not saying that’s a inexperienced light to go to the market, but we have excellent players in the home also that may get even further opportunities, like Eddie Nketiah for case in point.

“We need to have to see. We are in November, so it truly is a excellent time to start off analysing what alternatives we have in the market. We are not closing the doorway but it truly is still not the chosen a person.

“The ideas were made in the summer months. We are delighted with how matters are likely. We are always likely to try to be the finest team we can be.

“If there is a quite excellent option, we are absolutely likely to take into consideration [it], we will see. Danny Welbeck’s harm alters, in a way, the sights.”
