Former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck with new Arsenal teammate Jack Wilshere

Danny Welbeck is officially an Arsenal player, and has posed for his first picture with new teammate Jack Wilshere.

The popular Manchester United striker was sold to make way for Radamel Falcao, and can be expected to lead the line for the Gunners over the coming months with Olivier Giroud injured.

Beyond that however Welbeck will certainly have plenty to give. At 23-years-old his best is yet to come, and with the service Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez can provide, it will not be a surprise to see him score for fun.

Importantly he fits into the 'British core' of players Arsene Wenger is building his team around, with Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Ramsey, Gibbs and Chambers.

Welbeck is currently on international duty with England, although a 'rolled ankle' could keep him out of the friendly with Norway on Wednesday evening.
