The 23-year-old joined the Gunners from Manchester United on transfer deadline day and has scored four goals so far this season for Arsene Wenger’s men.
Welbeck has spent most of his life living in Manchester but the striker is now looking forward to getting to know the English capital.
“It’s a bit different in London, because obviously I was born and bred in Manchester so that’s a place I know like the back of my hand,” Welbeck told Arsenal Magazine.
“I went to school there and you really get to know the city. Manchester is much smaller so you know a lot of people in the vicinity.
“Growing up there, we played lots of different schools and you’d see people you knew in town all the time. I used to get two buses to school and you’d see more or less everyone in the city centre, so I kind of knew everyone around my age group.
“There were a lot of people in Manchester that I was connected to so it is a bit different coming to London and not knowing as many people. But I have got friends down here and my cousin has been working here for a few years now.
“It is a change for me but something I’m really looking forward to – starting a new adventure.”
