Danny Welbeck can be prolific at Arsenal, says Alan Shearer
“I’ve heard people say he is never going to be a 20 or 25-goals-a-season striker. I disagree,” Shearer told BBC Radio 5 live.
“He now has an opportunity to stamp his authority on the Premier League.”
On Thursday, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Welbeck did not score enough goals during his time at Old Trafford.
The Manchester-born forward, who netted both of England’s goals in the 2-0 win in Switzerland on Monday, has not managed more than nine goals in a Premier League season since making his senior debut in 2008.
He struggled to hold down a regular place in the United starting line-up, particularly in his favoured role as a central striker, and his chances would have been limited further by the arrival of Radamel Falcao
