Michael Owen believes Danny Welbeck will suit Arsenal after the striker moved to north London from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old England international penned a long-term deal with the Gunners after Arsenal agreed a £16m fee with the Red Devils on transfer deadline day.

Welbeck had fallen out of favour at Old Trafford over the past season and Radamel Falcao’s loan inevitably resulted in the forward leaving 20-time English champions.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had been looking to bolster his attacking line-up over the past week after Olivier Giroud was sidelined for three to four months with a broken leg.

And former United striker Owen believes Welbeck will prove to be a “very good addition” to Arsenal’s squad and is confident the England star can prove a success if played as a striker.

“Arsenal have pulled off a very good signing in Welbeck. He’s young, English, fast and someone who Wenger can get more out of,” Owen posted on Twitter.

“People talk about a lack of goals but he’s hardly played as a striker at United. He will suit Arsenal.”

Welbeck scored 20 goals in 92 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils.
