Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck will be allowed to leave the club in the summer, according to reports in the English media.
The 28-year-old is currently out for the long-term with an ankle injury, but his contract at the club expires at the end of the season.
It seems the Gunners will not be looking to extend his time at the Emirates, with the forward now likely to join Aaron Ramsey by moving on a free transfer.
The reasons why the London club are prepared to let Welbeck leave are believed to be twofold.
Firstly, the wages the former Manchester United striker currently earns can be put towards signing other players, and secondly, manager Unai Emery wants to give young players like Reiss Nelson a clear path to the first team.
The 18-year-old is currently performing well during his loan spell with Hoffenheim in Germany, having scored six goals in just nine Bundesliga matches this campaign.
