Arsenal prepped for Man City as Unai Emery hints Danny Welbeck could play left-back
But with the striker not guaranteed a new deal next season, Emery has already been testing him in a number of positions so that he can be called on when needed.
He said: ‘Danny Welbeck is one of the players who has a multi-position possibility – right winger, left winger, striker, and also yesterday [Thursday] he worked with us at left back [in a training match] – his performance was good! I like this spirit.’
It was then the former Paris Saint-Germain manager set out his demands of Welbeck.
‘And work for that. And then the possibility to play as a left winger, right winger or striker.
‘Helping with his quality and also getting better with his quality and his data in this year.
‘More goals, more assists. Working to help when we need quick pressing against the opposition.’
