Twice Bitten Four Times Shy Welbeck Rumours Rubbished

Danny Welbeck is leaving Arsenal at the end of the season when his contract expires and is available on a free transfer in a matter of days, the England striker has endured 'Carroll/Wilshere'sque luck with injuries during his time in north London, and Arsenal have now decided to cut their losses and let him go.

Of course because Wellbeck is available without a transfer fee, back in the day he would have been a prime candidate for the West Ham United 'retirement' home. However having had their fingers severely burnt by the signing of Andy Carroll, and then compounded the situation by signing Jack Wilshere, it is highly unlikely the club will want to risk taking on yet another injury prone player.

Despite being only 28 years old, Wellbeck has had less game time than Carroll! Everton are interested in signing the ex-Manchester United hitman, who, on his day is unplayable, the problem is those days are so and far between that there is a chasm between his potential and his practicality, a bit like Carroll and Wilshere.

West Ham United cannot afford to sign any more crocks, and are finally able to get Andy Carroll of their books, so why on earth would they want to replace one injury crisis about to happen with another?

Everton, Crystal Palace, Wolves and Newcastle are the Premier League sides keen on Welbeck, with Italian side Lazio said to be after him too. Players available on free transfers are usually available for a reason, and nine times out of ten the reason is they are either too old, or too injury prone. Hammers need to give players like Wellbeck a wide berth. - Ed
