Welbeck completed a £16 million move from Manchester United to the Gunners on Monday, with the Red Devils signing Radamel Falcao on a season long loan as his replacement.
Recently, the 23-year-old has struggled to play regularly for United and this is the main reason he sought a move away from Old Trafford.
With Olivier Giroud out injured, Welbeck can expect to play plenty of games as the Gunners sole striker, a position he has longed to play.
Meanwhile, several former United players and officials have spoken of their disappointment at the clubs decision to sell the striker, with former assistant manager Mike Phelan claiming that the Red Devils have broken their identity by selling the 23 year old.
Welbeck came through the youth ranks at United and many of the club’s fans are worried that they are changing philosophy by looking to buy more players instead of producing youngsters.
