The Mirror report this morning that Danny Welbeck has returned to full training.
The striker has missed all of pre-season due to a knee complaint that kept him out of the end of last season and the FA Cup final, but he’s been cleared to resume training ahead of the new season.
The knock-on effect of that is Arsenal sanctioning Chuba Akpom’s loan move to Hull, but Welbeck himself faces a fight to get back into the team.
With Arsene Wenger now using Theo Walcott as well as Olivier Giroud up front, the former Manchester United man will have to bide his time a bit, but take his chances when they come.
Having joined on deadline day last summer, Welbeck scored scored 14 goals for club and country last season, but will be aiming to improve on the 8 he got for the Gunners – including that Old Trafford winner that helped us on our way to an FA Cup triumph.
