Danny Welbeck looks set to leave Arsenal before September

Everton are considering a £15million move for England striker Welbeck, who is in the final year of his contract and has yet to be offered a new deal.

The 27-year-old is at the back of a long queue of attacking options behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi.

Signed in a £16m deal from Manchester United in 2014, Welbeck has scored just 15 Premier League goals for the Gunners in four seasons.

Now he faces a long spell on the subs’ bench unless he can secure a permanent move before the Premier League transfer deadline on August 9.

New Everton boss Marco Silva is monitoring his situation but will move only if he fails with a £36m bid for Bordeaux’s Brazilian winger Malcom.

Colombia keeper Ospina is surplus to requirements following the signing of £19.2m Bernd Leno.

Perez, who spent last season on loan at old club Deportivo La Coruna, wants to fight for his place.

But he can go after scoring just one Premier League goal since his £17m move from Spain.
