Rene Meulensteen believes the best is yet to come from Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck.

The England international penned a five-year deal with the north London side on transfer deadline day after being deemed surplus to requirements at Manchester United.

He is a very versatile player and I’m 100 per cent sure he will do very, very well for Arsenal

Welbeck, who scored nine goals in 25 Premier League appearances last season, was pushed out the Old Trafford exit door following the arrival of big-name loan signing Radamel Falcao.

And former United coach Meulensteen, who has been linked with a return to the Red Devils coaching staff, believes Welbeck will prove to be a “very, very good signing” for Arsenal.

“I had him from when he was 8, 9 years of age and I think the best of Danny is yet to come,” Meulensteen told talkSPORT.

“He is a very versatile player and I’m 100 per cent sure he will do very, very well for Arsenal.

“Danny is a perfect match for Arsenal. He is such a versatile player.

“He is very good in short, creative, combination play, showing for the ball, passing and moving, picking up different positions. At the same time he has the pace and power to break away if they break from their own half. I think he is a really good match.”
