BBC reporter: Arsenal in ‘discussions’ over new contract for this 27-year-old star

BBC journalist David Ornstein has provided an update on the potential of Arsenal agreeing to offer a new contract to one of Unai Emery’s fringe players.

The Gunners said goodbye to a lot of key players during Arsene Wenger’s reign due to disagreements over new contracts.

Arsenal appear to be willing to change their policy for the better as the club looks to secure a place back in the Champions League this season.

One player who has little time remaining on his current contract is Danny Welbeck after moving to the Emirates stadium from Manchester United during the summer of 2014.

The 27-year-old recently suffered a serious ankle injury which might see him not play again this season.

However, according to BBC journalist David Ornstein, the Gunners are now considering the possibility of handing Welbeck a new contract at the club.

“I think there have been some initial discussions about now offering Welbeck a contract, if the numbers are right for the club, bearing in mind he could be out for a while.” Ornstein said

“I dont think it’s a sentimental thing, but they value him very highly at Arsenal.”
