Arsenal are thought to be close to securing the signing of Danny Welbeck from Manchester United for a fee believed to worth around £16m.

The 23-year-old appears to be edging ever closer to a move to Emirates Stadium on transfer deadline day as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options at Emirates Stadium.

England international Welbeck has scored 29 goals in 139 games for United in the last three seasons.

Wenger has been on the lookout for a new striker since Olivier Giroud was ruled out until the new year with a broken tibia bone.

And now it seems that he could be set to switch Premier League clubs before Monday’s 2300 deadline.

Welbeck’s potential arrival in north London has created a stir on the social networks – here are some of our favourite updates.
