‘Give Him A 1 Year Extension’ ‘Time To Release Him’ – Fans On Twitter Debate Arsenal Ace’s Future Following Emery Comments

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has hinted that Danny Welbeck could be handed a new contract to stay at the Emirates.

The 28-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer, but despite the player being unlikely to play before the end of the season due to an ankle injury, Emery said he hopes discussions over a new deal will take place:

“It’s difficult for him to play matches this season but he is progressing very well and maybe the doctor will tell us he can come train with us in the last weeks of this season. After, his individual thing is to speak with the club [about his future].”

Fans on Twitter are split over whether Welbeck’s contract should be renewed:

One of the major considerations will be whether Arsenal finish in a Champions League spot. Welbeck is likely to be on a high wage and if the Gunners end the season outside of the top four, the wage bill will likely need to be cut.

Considering too that the former Manchester United striker is not first choice, with both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ahead of him in the pecking order at the Emirates, a renewal does appear to be unlikely as things stand.
