Arsenal manager Unai Emery has hinted that Danny Welbeck could be utilised in the left-back position, should an emergency arise during the course of the season. The England international was heavily tipped to make way from the Gunners earlier in the summer but the speculation has since ceased with Emery highlighting the player’s importance.
In a report covered by The Mirror, Emery hailed the versatility of the former Manchester United man and believes the Englishman is capable of slotting onto the left side of the backline, he said: “Danny Welbeck is one of the players who has a multi-position possibility. Right winger, left winger, striker, and also yesterday he worked with us at left-back -- his performance was good! I like this spirit. To help positions across the team with positive spirit.I said to him when he arrived with us after the holidays, I want the best performance in his career from this player -- and to work for that.”
