24-Year-Old Forward Arsenal Premier
Danny Welbeck Contract Information:
Signed with Arsenal in September 2014 after transferring from Manchester United.
Manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Welbeck is close to a return from this thigh injury, and that he will feature against Spurs on Feb. 7. "He is very close," Wenger said. "He is really, really, really nearly there. He will be available for the Tottenham game."
Given the timeline, Welbeck will not play Sunday against Aston Villa, leaving Olivier Giroud to continue to lead the line.
