Ever since the arrivals of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the future of Danny Welbeck seems more and more dreary and the fact that Alex Iwobi was handed a new contract, was a clear indication of Welbeck’s exit.

Welbeck joined the Gunners from Manchester United in the summer of 2014, for a fee of around £16 million, but injuries have hampered his progress at the Emirates and hence his chances for the line-ups seem slimmer and slimmer with the growing competition.Although,he had a good season with the Gunners last season with some good performances in the Europa League. Welbeck scored 10 times for the Gunners and assited two,both of the assists coming in the Premier League.
The England international who only played for 11-minutes in the World Cup even though having the most experience as well as goals for the National Side than the rest of the strikers,has just one year left at Arsenal. In addition, the Evening Standard reported that Emery is willing to listen to offers for the 27 year old.
There are many teams interested in Welbeck due to his sheer potential, although having an average season at Arsenal due to injuries. Everton, Bournemouth, and Southampton are among several clubs reported who were keen, with Southampton most interested in him and monitoring his situation closely.

With the English transfer window closed now, Arsenal are open to selling Welbeck outside England and are willing to listen to offers from other European League Teams. As reported by Express UK, Welbeck earns £115,000 per week and those wages would free up more space for Emery as he looks to tie Aaron Ramsey down to a new deal.
Reports have claimed Arsenal are fighting a losing battle to keep hold of the 27-year-old because he wants a staggering £300,000 a week.That salary would see Ramsey surpass the likes of Mesut Ozil and Aubameyang to become the club’s highest earner although there are reports emerging that Arsenal are going in a positive direction with Ramsey in terms of negotiations.

As for the future of the 27-year-old,Welbeck who has been looking at the exit sign since long, and was set to join Everton this summer, nothing can be said as such for now. Personally, one would think Welbeck he should try his options with other clubs and utilize his talent at a club where he would actually have some regular playing time.
