Arsene Wenger: 'Danny Welbeck can be a top finisher'

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feels that Danny Welbeck has the ability to fire in front of goal for his side down the middle after netting his first strike for the club.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes that Danny Welbeck has the potential to become one of the best finishers in the Premier League.

The 23-year-old failed to net in his first two matches for the Gunners following his £16m move from Manchester United on deadline day.

However, Welbeck got on the scoresheet in Wenger's side's 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday, and the Frenchman believes that the goal will breed confidence in the striker.

He told reporters: "I think Danny has an interesting potential and let's see how he develops. He has a good mentality, good physical potential, technical potential, he contributes to our team play because he doesn't lose the ball up front and those are important qualities.

"He rushed a bit his finishing until now because he didn't score. It is more a nervous problem maybe because in training he scores goals like a real striker. He is a good finisher.

"I think as well he has played at Manchester United in the position wide the last two or three years, never through the middle. Then you lose a little bit that instinct to score. And you lose that pressure which is animalistic – you need to always be in the middle and wait for your chance to kill the opponent."

Arsenal are fourth in the Premier League after five matches this season.
