Danny Welbeck will leave Arsenal at the end of the season when his contract at the club comes to an end.
The Times report that the Gunners are happy to let the player leave on a free transfer at the end of the campaign in a bid to make room in both the squad and on the wage bill.
The report claims that the decision to let Welbeck move on is being taken with the view to implementing Reiss Nelson into the squad next season.
Nelson has been catching the eye in the Bundesliga this season during a fruitful loan spell with Hoffenheim.
Welbeck has struggled with injuries throughout his Arsenal career and could well have played his last game for the club.
The ex-Manchester United man is set to miss a large chunk of the season through injury, but the Gunners are hoping that he could feature before the end of the campaign.
