Danny Welbeck an exciting player for Arsenal, says ex-Liverpool striker
Former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey feels Arsenal signing Danny Welbeck is an underrated striker
Emile Heskey believes Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck will prove an exciting signing for the north London club.
The 23-year-old signed a five-year deal with the north London club on transfer deadline day after the forward was deemed surplus to requirements at Manchester United.
He seems like a player who actually listens to what his manager wants. He will be exciting for Arsenal
And former England international Heskey feels the former Red Devils man Welbeck is a very underrated striker who will score plenty of goals for Arsene Wenger’s side this season.
“He has got the ability to do well there [at Arsenal],” Heskey told talkSPORT. “I think their style of play will suit him. People don’t realise how good he is.
“[His ability] on the ball, his movement and his pace, those three things will help you, especially in an Arsenal team.
“He seems like a player who actually listens to what his manager wants. He will be exciting for Arsenal.
“He will get a bit of a run [while Olivier Giroud is out] and then you will see the best of him. There is no reason why he can’t do well at Arsenal.”
