In recent seasons, Arsenal's Danny Welbeck has been hit by injuries which has resulted in his career stagnating, but that hasn't stopped the likes of Everton and Wolves showing reported interest in his services.
The Evening Standard have claimed that Everton are in pole position to sign the £100k-a-week attacker from Arsenal in the summer with Wolves, West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United the other interested parties.
It is said that versatile forward Welbeck is keen on staying in the Premier League and moving to a team with Champions League ambitions when he becomes a free transfer.
If Welbeck had a choice he should opt to join Everton because if they want to take that next step in the ladder then a player of his quality would be valuable to them.
The 28-year-old can play out on the left or more centrally, but crucially he would score the goals and add more of an attacking threat to Marco Silva's European-chasing team.
Some may point towards the experienced man joining Wolves, who do need more depth out wide, but given Wolves' current philosophy of who they buy, Welbeck may just be more suited for a move to Goodison Park.
Whoever signs Welbeck in the summer, whether it'd be West Ham, Newcastle, Everton, Wolves or Crystal Palace, he'd add a lot of value for a player that is joining the club as a free transfer.
But before the former Manchester United striker does make his move, he will be hoping to help Arsenal win the Europa League on Wednesday night.
The London outfit will take on their bitter rivals Chelsea in Baku, with Unai Emery hoping to win his first trophy at club and Welbeck hoping to part his ways with Arsenal in the best possible manner.
