Crystal Palace are considering making a bid for Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck in January, it has been reported. 

Welbeck, 27, could be available for a cut price as his Gunners contract runs out next summer and he is yet to be offered a new deal. Arsenal bosses may look to sell rather than lose him for nothing 6 months later.

Arsenal may be willing to sell as Welbeck is behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in the pecking order.

Palace meanwhile are in desperate need of a striker. Christian Benteke is out with a long-term injury and the other forwards at the club have failed to fire – the Eagles have scored just 8 goals in the Premier League this season.

A move may appeal to Welbeck too as, without regular game time, his England place could come under threat. He also worked well with Eagles manager Roy Hodgson when the latter was in charge of the Three Lions.
Various news outlets have suggested Welbeck could be bought for just £10 million.
