Arsenal to agree transfer deal for powerful striker

Spanish outfit Valencia are keen on signing Danny Welbeck this summer according to reports milling about in English and Spanish dailies.

The European transfer window does not shut until August 31, and Valencia are keen on bolstering their forward options ahead of the new La Liga campaign.

But there’s an upside to the transfer story. The Spanish giants are looking to hand in a loan bid for the forward, with an option to buy permanently later.

Danny Welbeck joined Arsenal from Manchester United in the summer of 2014, after enduring a battering campaign under then Dutch manager Louis van Gaal.

Welbeck made his competitive debut against current champions Manchester City, before netting his first goal for the Gunners that same month against Aston Villa.

The 27-year-old has endured a long spell of injuries since joining the Gunners and was hugely rumoured to be in Unai Emery’s bucket-list of players to be axed from the club.

The England international face stiff competition from January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette up front and on the flanks may struggle to hold in against the rigid Mesut Ozil and January comer Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Meanwhile, Valencia will also try and sign Chelsea and Belgian striker   Mitchy Batshuayi and according to reports, talks have advanced between the La Liga giants and the Blues.
