Having enjoyed time at top English clubs including both Manchester United and Arsenal, a move to Turkey would be a dramatic change for the England international.

The forward’s time at Arsenal has been plagued by injury issues, but this season he has clocked up 28 appearances and scored six goals across all competitions.

Earlier this year Arsene Wenger had spoken of his desire to keep Welbeck at the Emirates, he said: “I want to keep him because I believe he has gone through a torrid time.

“He has come out well. I see signs in training now that are positive. If he can stay on the pitch and not be injured, I want him to stay here.

“I like him because he can play left, right or up front.”

However, with Unai Emery now taking the reins, there could well be a shake up within the Arsenal team.

Welbeck had been axed from Gareth Southgate’s squad for the November friendlies against Brazil and Germany, but was brought back into the fold for the Holland fixture earlier this year.

The forward has surprisingly good form on the international stage and has found the back of the net 15 times in 37 internationals.
