The Evening Standard is reporting that Welbeck returned to London Colney to begin pre-season training on Monday but his future at the north London club looks to be unclear.
Welbeck was given an extended summer holiday by his club despite only making a short appearance for England at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
The forward has struggled with form and fitness issues since signing for Arsenal from Manchester United back in 2015.
Now, according to the same article, new Arsenal manager Unai Emery has told Welbeck that he will not be a regular starter next season and that it may be in his interests to seek a move away from The Emirates.
Welbeck has one year left on his current deal at Arsenal and the striker is said to be attracting interest from Turkish side Besiktas.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently preparing for their first Premier League game under Emery when they take on Manchester City at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
The north London side are gearing up for their first campaign under Spanish manager after his appointment as Arsene Wenger’s successor back in May.
