EPL: Unai Emery to sell Arsenal striker for £10m in January

Arsenal are considering allowing Danny Welbeck leave the club in January, despite Unai Emery desire to retain him in his squad, the UK Sun reports.

Welbeck’s current deal expires in the summer of 2019, when he will be available on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old has however made 13 appearances under Emery in all competitions this season.

Despite the Spanish coach’s trust in Welbeck, Arsenal bosses do not want to miss out on a transfer fee and will listen to any offers in January.

Welbeck is behind both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in the striker pecking order at the Emirates, though he has been a very useful backup.

Crystal Palace would be prepared to pay £10m to sign Welbeck, even though his contract is expiring, which still marks a £6m loss compared to the fee Arsenal paid back in 2014.
