Newcastle United can get their chance to sign Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck this summer when he becomes a free agent.
It did seem certain he would be allowed to leave the Gunners but news over the weekend that Arsenal are offering him a new deal to stay at the Emirates Stadium.
But the deal is with reduced terms from what he’s currently getting.
There was news over the weekend in the Mirror that Newcastle were interested in signing the player.
Rafa Benitez is a long-term fan of the striker and was interested last summer in signing him for around £10M.
Rafa wanted to sign the player and Newcastle still need some extra scoring power up front.
Danny Welbeck – do Newcastle want to sign him?
It’s been another disappointing season and we have only scored 36 goals in our 36 games.
Last season we scored 39 goals in 38 games so nothing much has improved on the goalscoring front this season.
Welbeck has been out injured for a few months now but is now said to be fit and ready to play.
There was also news from the Chronicle over the weekend that Newcastle will not be interested in trying to sign the 28-year-old former Macnsheter United striker.
The England International does have a history of missing games through injury and he’s getting on a bit in age – well as far as Mike Ashley is concerned – so maybe Newcastle will pass on the player?
What do you think?
