Arsenal keen to tie down Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck to longer deals

• Arsenal midfielder and forward out of contract in July 2019
• Arsène Wenger: ‘Both of them are in a good moment for us’

Arsène Wenger wants to push new contract talks with Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, whose deals at Arsenal expire in the summer of 2019. However, the manager has warned that because of the inflation of the transfer market, more and more players are set to enter the last years on their contracts.

Arsenal have a clutch of players in their final 12 months, most notably Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil, and there would be consternation if Ramsey and Welbeck were to go down the same path. Welbeck is currently out until mid-October with a groin injury but he started the season well while Ramsey was impressive in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea.

Danny Welbeck’s Arsenal return will offer Arsène Wenger new weapon

The forward has spent 17 of the past 20 months on the sidelines but is back in full training and ready to add new dimension to Arsenal’s front three

It was at the Etihad Stadium in May that Danny Welbeck’s devastated expression, as he lay on the pitch while the Arsenal physiotherapist examined his knee, told of another major problem. He was not long recovered from an injury that kept him out of action for 10 months. The blow of new serious damage was obvious.

Seven months down the line of the latest spell in rehabilitation, Welbeck gave himself the best Christmas present with a return to full training on Friday morning.

Who should take Danny Welbeck’s place in the England squad at Euro 2016?

Andy Carroll, Troy Deeney or Jermain Defoe could play up front for England but Roy Hodgson may look to Theo Walcott, Michail Antonio, Andros Townsend, Marc Albrighton or Wilfried Zaha for more attacking options on the wing

By Martin Laurence for WhoScored?, part of the Guardian Sport Network

The knee injury Danny Welbeck suffered in Arsenal’s match against Manchester City has ruled him out of this summer’s European Championship, which is a significant blow to Roy Hodgson. While the 25-year old forward is far from prolific at club level, his international record is highly commendable and Welbeck has become a favourite of the England boss. He offers exceptional athleticism in attack but, as with other explosive, muscular players, his susceptibility to injury has hampered his career.

How Hodgson reacts to this setback will depend on the role he saw Welbeck occupying in his squad. Welbeck prefers to play as a central striker but Hodgson would have deployed him in a wide role, with the likes of Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge less flexible tactically. With three very good options to choose from in the No9 position, not to mention captain Wayne Rooney, Hodgson could opt to replace Welbeck with another player capable of fulfilling duties on the wing.

If, as expected, the knee injury suffered by Danny Welbeck in Sunday’s match between Arsenal and Manchester City rules him out of this summer’s European Championship, it represents a significant blow to Roy Hodgson.

How Hodgson reacts to this setback will depend on the role he saw Welbeck occupying in his squad. Welbeck prefers to play as a central striker but Hodgson would have deployed him in a wide role, with the likes of Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge less flexible tactically. Indeed, with three very good options to choose from in the No9 position, not to mention captain Wayne Rooney, Hodgson could opt to replace Welbeck with another player capable of fulfilling duties on the wing.

• Striker hurt during draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium
• Player ‘very down’ with England squad due to be selected on Thursday

Danny Welbeck’s hopes of being selected for England’s Euro 2016 campaign are under threat after he suffered a suspected lateral meniscus injury in his right knee during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw at Manchester City on Sunday.

Daniel Sturridge back in England shirt for the first time in 573 days

• Roy Hodgson: ‘Sturridge is back to the player he was before his injury’
• England’s game with Holland is last before Euro 2016 squad is named

Daniel Sturridge will make his first England appearance for 573 days against Holland at Wembley on Tuesday with Roy Hodgson warning both the Liverpool striker and Danny Welbeck that they must prove they have returned to full fitness over what remains of the domestic season if they are to make the squad for the European Championship finals the summer.

Hodgson has cast doubt on his initial intention to make wholesale changes to his lineup after the hugely encouraging victory against the world champions, Germany, on Saturday but he is still expected to offer game-time to those players who did not start in Berlin. James Milner will captain the side, Fraser Forster begins in goal after Jack Butland cruelly broke his ankle at the Olympiastadion and Sturridge will gain his 17th cap.

Danny Welbeck’s fitness remains concern for England before Euros

• Striker restricted to light gym work three days after playing at Everton
• Ability to play a number of games in a short period of time under question

Danny Welbeck’s ability to participate in a number of games in a short period of time remains a major concern for England before the European Championship after the Arsenal striker was restricted to light gym work at St George’s Park a little over three days after playing at Everton.

The decision to limit the striker’s involvement on Tuesday, when Roy Hodgson’s squad met at their training base in Burton to prepare for the friendlies against Germany and Holland, was taken after discussions with Arsenal’s medical staff as the player continues to work on his recovery from a knee problem.

Six into five will not go as Roy Hodgson begins final sift of England strikers | Daniel Taylor

England’s manager has two friendlies to make his mind up for Euro 2016, and Theo Walcott looks like the man with most of the convincing to do

For the players on the windswept pitches of St George’s Park, preparing for their last two England assignments before Roy Hodgson announces his squad for Euro 2016, these are the moments when the tournament is suddenly looming.

Around half of those players will know by now they are virtually assured of a place in Hodgson’s plans, barring the kind of injury misfortune that invariably tends to stick a needle in England’s balloon. Wayne Rooney can be added to that number, as Hodgson’s captain. Joe Hart will be another automatic choice once his injury has healed and the same applies to Raheem Sterling, his Manchester City colleague.

Danny Welbeck will be out until at least February, reveals Arsène Wenger

• Forward has suffered a deterioration of bone bruising problem
• Arsenal manager frustrated by lack of options due to injuries

Arsène Wenger has confirmed that Danny Welbeck will not be back in the Arsenal first team picture until at least February. The England forward has been out since last spring but is still not close to returning.

“Unfortunately he was injured at the end of April and we are now at the end of December and he is still not available because of a bone bruising. That deteriorated and it is a big blow to us,” Wenger said. “Especially now we cannot rotate.”

• Welbeck not fully recovered from bruised bone that cost him FA Cup final
• Tomas Rosicky, Alexis Sánchez and David Ospina will also be absent

Danny Welbeck has been ruled out of the Arsenal squad for the Barclays Asia Trophy in Singapore next week because he has still not shaken off the knee injury that kept him on the sidelines at the end of last season.

The striker missed Arsenal’s last six matches, including the FA Cup final victory over Aston Villa, because of bone bruising, and then England’s games against the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia in June. His last appearance was against Chelsea on 26 April.
