Welbeck signed with Arsenal on Monday after transferring from Manchester United.

Welbeck was already excess at Manchester United, and even more so when they nabbed Falcao from AS Monaco. With Olivier Giroud out until 2015, Welbeck should immediately hit the starting XI with plenty of players who can feed him the ball where he likes it.

Welbeck (knee) made his Premier League season-debut when he subbed on for Robin van Persie in the 63rd minute of Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Sunderland on Sunday.

Welbeck missed the season-opener with a knee injury, but he has returned to fitness enough to warrant some time off the bench. With no starting spot available to him as long as van Persie and Wayne Rooney are healthy, Welbeck has been the subject of numerous transfer rumors this summer, the most recent connecting him to Hull City. A move away would certainly increase his fantasy potential, as he just doesn't get enough consistent starts to warrant much investment in most fantasy leagues.

Sunderland became the latest club to signal their interest in bringing Welbeck to the club from Manchester United, reports the Daily Mail.

Just a few days ago the club interest was coming from Hull with a 12 million offer. Welbeck continues to consider what his playing time with United will be as the offers keep rolling in.

Welbeck will not play in Manchester United's Premier League opener against Swansea City on Saturday due to a knee injury.

Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed the situation Friday, a disappointing development for Welbeck, who may have been in line for a start with Robin van Persie deemed unfit following only minimal training after the World Cup.

Welbeck (knee) is being targeted by Hull who are looking to capitalize on the uncertainty of what role the striker will have under manager Louis van Gaal, reports the Daily Mail.

The move probably wouldn't make sense for the young striker's career as he will be looking to regularly challenge for titles and Champions League matches. His potential lack of playing time under the new manager could influence a decision, though. Hull have asked about Welbeck's availability, and no formal bid has been lodged or accepted at this point.

Welbeck suffered a knee injury during Saturday's match against Real Madrid in the Guinness International Champions Cup, the club's official website reports.

Welbeck was in position to possibly earn a spot in the starting XI for the Premier League opener against Swansea City on Aug. 16, as Robin van Persie is unlikely to be fit after just resuming training Monday. If Welbeck and van Persie can't go, Javier Hernandez could get the opening start up front.
