Arsenal likely to let Welbeck leave for free

Danny Welbeck may have already played his last game for Arsenal, with the forward looking likely to join Aaron Ramsey in leaving on a free transfer next summer.

The Gunners currently have no plans to offer Welbeck a new contract, and his current deal expires in June 2019.

With the 28-year-old out with a long-term ankle injury, which required two rounds of surgery in November, any future appearances in the Arsenal first team, even this season, are therefore in doubt.

Welbeck joined Arsenal on a five-year deal from Manchester United in 2014 and has made 126 appearances during a spell in North London littered with injury problems.

He spent six months out during the 2015-16 season with a knee injury before another lengthy spell out between May 2016 and January 2017.
