According to Arsenal's website, Welbeck feels that at times he imagined himself playing at the Gunners.
“It's exciting times for me,” said Welbeck.
“It's great to be a part of this club and it's a team that I've always watched in the Premier League.”
“I believe the style of play the manager's got and the boys play and with the magnificent players in midfield slotting balls through, I can run on to the end of those balls and slot them away.”
Welbeck reveals that the deal went straight ‘down to the wire’ on transfer deadline day after the Gunners appeal for an extra hour was approved by the football association.
“It's difficult to say how I felt at the (different) times of each day because the deal was on and then it was off but at the end of the day I'm an Arsenal player and I couldn't be any happier at the moment.”
Arsenal are short of strikers with Olivier Giroud reportedly being ruled out of action until next year with a fractured ankle and with Welbeck adding to their strike force the 23-year-old is adamant about netting goals for the London club.
“I'd like to bring pace and power to the game,” said Welbeck.
“At Arsenal, we're not short of combination football and I like to join in on that and get in behind defenders and try to get shots off at goal.” “I want to score some goals and help the team to achieve the right results.”
