Crystal Palace Linked With £10m January Move For Arsenal Striker

Danny Welbeck has struggled for regular football this season
Danny Welbeck has struggled for regular football this season

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is ready to unleash a £10m bid for Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck in January, as the former England boss tries to add significant strength to an Eagles attacking line-up that has struggled for goals in the Premier League this season.

Welbeck is out of contract at the Gunners in the summer and has had to play second fiddle to the flourishing partnership of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this campaign, but while Arsenal manager Unai Emery is happy to keep Welbeck as part of his squad the north London club are willing to listen to offers for the former Manchester United striker.

According to The Sun, 27-year-old Welbeck is ready to try and go in search of more regular first-team football, and it's reported that Arsenal are happy to listen to bids for the attacker as they are already set to miss out on a big fee for Aaron Ramsey, who is set to leave the Emirates Stadium on a free.

Palace boss Hodgson has watched his side fail to set the world alight in front of goal this season and the Selhurst Park club have only scored eight goals in the Premier League this season, so the addition of Welbeck, who has already scored five goals this season (mainly in EFL Cup and Europa League) would be a superb addition to the squad.

Ultimately, Welbeck could be holding out for Arsenal to offer him a new contract in the coming weeks, but if that fails to materialise then he could be on his way out of the Emirates and Palace could be the most likely destination as he looks to try and recapture the form that saw him sparkle for the English national team a few seasons ago.
