West Ham United would need to give up on the pursuit of FSV Mainz striker Yoshinori Muto and consider move for Danny Welbeck as the England international’s future at Arsenal looks bleak.
As reported by German newspaper Bild, it’s claimed the Hammers are considering move for Muto with Mainz looking to sell their 25-year-old striker this summer.
His 10 goals last season for the German side is enough reason for West Ham to consider as their replacement to Andy Carroll, who is injured yet again as per an official report from the club’s website.
Manuel Pellegrini should look to take advantage of this situation and quickly made the move for the 27-year-old as he serve a better option than Muto.
Welbeck, who earns £70,000-a-week with Arsenal, is a proven Premier League ace unlike Muto. In 198 top-flight appearances, Welbeck has netted 41 goals.
This means that 27-year-old would be able to settle into life quicker at the London Stadium compared to Muto as he knows what is needed to excel in the Premier League from the get go.
Also unlike Muto, Welbeck is a versatile player who as well as being able to play a centre-forward is capable of featuring as a winger on either flank if needed.
