Report: Arsenal to acquire Danny Welbeck from Manchester United
Arsenal and Manchester United have agreed on the transfer of striker Danny Welbeck, reports BBC Sports.
Arsenal will reportedly pay a £16m ($26.6 million) fee to acquire Welbeck.
According to BBC, United has told Welbeck he can leave given the impending arrival of Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco. Tottenham and Sunderland had also expressed interest in Welbeck.
Arsenal was in need of a striker after learning that Olivier Giroud needed ankle surgery and will be out three to four months.
Welbeck has been with Manchester United since 2008, including loans to Preston North End and Sunderland. He played 90 games with United and scored nine goals in 15 Premier League games last season.
The 23-year-old was also a member of England's 2014 World Cup team.
