Jack Wilshere believes that Arsenal have netted a “bargain” with the £16m signing of Danny Welbeck from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old striker signed a five-year deal with the Gunners last week after being deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.

Danny can make the difference for Arsenal this season

Welbeck is a product of Manchester United’s youth system and had been at the Old Trafford club since he was nine years old.

And Wilshere feels that the north Londoners are set to reap the rewards of a shrewd piece of transfer business in the seasons to come.

“Danny’s a Manchester United boy, he grew up there,” Wilshere told the Independent.

“It’s a bit like Arsenal letting me go for £16m. It probably won’t happen.

“In today’s market £16m is nothing really. With the quality Danny’s got, we have a bargain.

“There are not many players that leave one top club for another in England, especially English players. It’s unheard of really.

“Danny can make the difference for Arsenal this season. He has great quality and will be good for us.”
