Jamie Redknapp: Arsenal have got such a bargain with Danny Welbeck


Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp believes Arsenal performed one of the most intelligent moves during the summer transfer window with the capture of Danny Welbeck.

The former Manchester United striker was twice on target for England in yesterday's 0-2 win away at Switzerland and looks to be a perfect fit for Arsene Wenger's Arsenal.

"I like what he does and the desire he shows to get into the box," Redknapp told Sky Sports.

"People talk about whether he’s this instinctive player; here I actually think he’s really relaxed.

"He knows he’s got a bit of time and he just bends it into the corner and that shows you what confidence he’s playing with.

"It was a crazy transfer window but I think Arsenal have got such a bargain with this man."

The Gunners signed the 23-year-old on the last day of the transfer market for a reported fee of £16m, a bargain according to the former England international.

"They paid £16million and when players are going to Championship clubs for £12million, that is the bargain of the century," Redknapp added.

"He gives you an outlet. If you look at that Arsenal side and the pace they have where they can break and counter, he’s perfect for it, he really is."
