The Gunners have been linked with a move to sign the Manchester United forward as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of Monday’s deadline.
You can see him have fantastic games, but he’s a little bit inconsistent
However, former midfielder Parlour does not feel that Welbeck is consistent enough to lead Arsenal’s front-line.
“That is the position where they are really struggling,” Parlour told talkSPORT. “I thought Remy was the choice with his experience, the obvious choice.
“Welbeck is a young player, he’s still learning, without a doubt he’s better than Sanogo, a player, but he blows hot and cold. You can see him have fantastic games, but he’s a little bit inconsistent.”
Wenger is currently on the lookout for a new striker following the news that Olivier Giroud will be out of action until the new year with a broken tibia.
