Everton lining up a shock transfer move on Arsenal

Everton is set to make a move for Arsenal star, Danny Welbeck if they fail to land his team mate Olivier Giroud.

The Toffees have been eyeing a move for Giroud all summer, but he is reluctant to leave London and move to Merseyside, so the Blues have identified his team mate Danny Welbeck as an alternative.

Despite signing Wayne Rooney, and Sandro Ramirez so far, Ronald Koeman still wants an out and out striker that is fast, and can stretch defences for the team, Welbeck fits that description.

Welbeck has spent a considerable amount of time as a Gunner on the sidelines, and his fitness issue may see him make way for the Gunners new attacker this season.

Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez appear to be Wenger’s first choice attackers, and the Chilean could be back in the starting lineup when the season opens next week.

Koeman is looking to break into the top four this season after spending a significant amount of money in the transfer market.

Welbeck is currently valued at £30 million, and the Toffees would have no problem paying that amount.
