According to Harry Talbot of Football Insider, Everton has "opened talks" with Danny Welbeck and could fight against Newcastle United for his signature this summer. The 28-year-old should leave the Arsenal at the end of his contract and will be available on a free transfer. Everton is looking for a striker and may have found the ideal candidate for Welbeck.
The English international joined Arsenal from Manchester United in 2014, scoring and creating 47 goals in 126 appearances in all competitions. Welbeck lost the pecking order after fighting for form and playing time at the Emirates Stadium. This season he has collected only 14 appearances, the last of which against the Sporting CP in the Europa League on November 8th.
Welbeck has spent the last six months with an ankle injury and is not close to putting an extension on black to stay at the Arsenal. Although the Gunners have spent £ 16m on their signing in 2014 and £ 32.5m in salaries over the past five years, they seem willing to let it go for nothing in the coming weeks, which is good news for Everton.
The Toffees have only Cenk Tosun, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin to choose from in attack, but Welbeck could provide another dimension for Marco Silva.
