Danny Welbeck will not be part of Arsenal’s pre-season tour of Asia but it is not due to any concerns about an impending departure from the club.
Manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the striker has still not recovered sufficiently from the injury problems that he suffered towards the end of last season. It was Welbeck’s first season at the Emirates stadium and one that ended in a positive note after the club won the FA Cup. Welbeck played a significant role throughout the campaign, but he missed some important matches due to injury. The FA Cup final was one of them, but Arsenal did not suffer without the former Manchester United man as they romped to a 4-0 win over Aston Villa.
