Arsene Wenger confirms Danny Welbeck injury means he will sign a new striker


Arsenal will sign a new striker to replace injured Danny Welbeck, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

The Englishman will be out of action for nine months after suffering a knee injury meaning that the Gunners will be short up front when the next campaign starts this summer.

The Frenchman also rubbished rumours that the club offered a two-year extension to his contract.

"[A new two-year contract?] That's completely wrong. I don't know where this information comes from," Wenger explained.

"You can treat that as just an invention and no more. It's absolutely false. I would like the press to check this information with myself or the club before they give it out. We both would have denied it.

"I think about the next game. At my stage you want to do well. I'm committed with integrity and commitment, full commitment to the club as long as I'm under contract, but at the moment that's all.

"What I focus on is respecting my contract and then envisage what I will do afterwards. I can understand people are interested in that, but that is not the most important thing. I extended my contract in a period that was vital for the club and after that i will see where I am personally and where the club stands at the end of my contract.

"[Now] we have to think about that [Danny Welbeck's injury and how to replace him].

"When a player is out for nine months, you have to consider that it is a season and that makes you short on the striker front."
