Arsenal Ace Persuaded Welbeck To Snub Tottenham For Emirates Move

By on September 3, 2014

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere played a key role in persuading Danny Welbeck to snub Tottenham and join Arsenal from Manchester United on deadline day, according to reports today.

Welbeck emerged as a serious transfer target for boss Arsene Wenger on Monday afternoon as he looked to bring in another front-man following an injury to Olivier Giroud.

Reports claimed it was a straight shoot-out between us and Tottenham for the strikers signature after he had decided to leave United following the imminent arrival of Radamel Falcao at Old Trafford.

Spurs were considered as the early favourites by some newspapers as they had been working on a deal throughout the summer.

However, the Sun claims that Jack Wilshere spent all of Monday persuading Welbeck to snub our North London rivals and head to the Emirates instead.

Both Wilshere and Welbeck were at London Colney on Monday training with the England squad so it seems Jack took the opportunity to lure his international team-mate to Arsenal.

I’m sure he probably didn’t need much persuading to be honest, as we’re a far more attracting proposition than Spurs, but it’s good to see the likes of Jack helping out where transfers are concerned.

Wilshere was one of the first Gunners players to welcome the 23-year-old to the club once his £16m move was confirmed, sharing a selfie (above) of the pair on Twitter.

    And for that Spurs fans will be eternally thankful to Wilshere! £16mil for a donkey…real good bit of business. Not surprised its Wilshere that persuaded him though, one donkey looking after another!

    These young English football players will show the world why Premier League is the best League in the world. With the guidance of Arsene Wenger, I think the team is going to hammers a lot of teams in the Premier League. The good thing is when they are in the national team they will be together and when they are at club, they will be together as well. I hope Arsenal will continue to recruit English players, and I like them for their aggressive when playing soccer. Teams should be very careful with these young talented English players. Also it is very good for the England nation team, it will benefit the club and the country as well. How good is that?

    Thanks Jack, for once I like you !! 16m for a guy who has managed less than half the goals of Spurs “flop” Soldado in the last year. Just one of the reasons I’m relieved he went elsewhere.

      In the Premier League 2013/2014 Season goal scoring chart, Welbeck was number 24 with 9 Goals, SolDODO was Number 54 with 6 goals (inc 4 penalties). At least do a bit of research before posting garbage.
      Soldado is a talented player – just that the club is rubbish 😉
      Welbeck isn’t the best striker but he has the potential to develop. I hope he does as that will be good for Arsenal and also for England.
