Arsenal Forward Linked With £10m Move To Crystal Palace: What Should Emery Do Here?

According to a recent report by the Sun, Crystal Palace are lining up a £10m offer to secure the services of Danny Welbeck from Arsenal during the January transfer window. The English forward’s current contract with the Gunners runs out at the end of this campaign, so the North London outfit would have to consider parting ways with him in January or else risk losing him for free next summer.

Palace’s Poor Goal-Scoring Record This Season

The Eagles have struggled to score goals up top which has been one of the primary reasons why they have made an underwhelming start to this season. Roy Hodgson’s men have just managed to register seven goals in 11 matches in the Premier League so far which is simply not good enough if they hope to avoid getting themselves involved in a relegation dogfight this term.

The likes of Christian Benteke, Jordan Ayew and Alexander Sørloth are all out of form, so Hodgson needs to address his attacking worries by bringing in a suitable striker to ease Wilfried Zaha’s workload up top.

Welbeck’s Bright Start To This Season Despite Limited Opportunities

Welbeck could be a potential option for them as the Gunners striker has impressed a lot of people during his time on the pitch. The 27-year-old has featured in 13 matches for the North London outfit this season, scoring five goals while creating one assist across all competitions. Most of his appearances have come in the cup competitions which might be frustrating for a forward like Welbeck who is always looking to earn more game time at the highest level.

What Does The English Forward Add To Emery’s Side?

The English prospect has an incredible turn of pace and can beat his marker in 1v1 situations. He is also a very effective dribbler with the ball and has proven that he can be a consistent goal-scorer in the past. Even after getting limited game time this season, the 27-year-old has enjoyed a rich vein of form of late, much to the delight of the Arsenal fans.

Should The Gunners Sell Him?

Unai Emery has a plethora of attacking assets at his disposal at the Emirates Stadium, so Welbeck’s departure might not affect his first-team plans too much. It will instead be a good move for all parties if the striker departs in January as Arsenal could use the money generated from his sale to bulk up in other areas of their squad.
