Betfair: Danny Welbeck next club

Betfair's Katie Baylis said: "With reports that Welbeck is set to leave Arsenal next summer and with no offers forthcoming, the door is wide open for a number of clubs to approach him.

"We make Everton the 3/1 favourites, with Leicester at 5/1 and Wolves at 6/1 for his next club if he does end up leaving the Emirates.”

Welbeck is currently out injured with a broken ankle and is set to follow in the same footsteps as Aaron Ramsey and leave when his contract expires.

It's been reported the Gunners have made it clear there will be no new deal for Welbeck who required surgery after landing awkwardly against Sporting Lisbon last month.
