Danny Welbeck has been linked with a move to Goodison Park, potentially joining up with former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney at Everton.

According to the Mirror, Everton are interested in the Arsenal forward, having seen their attempts to land Olivier Giroud fail. The report claims manager Ronald Koeman is keen on the England international, who is believed to be fond of the Everton boss, says Tuttomercatoweb.

Wayne Rooney moved from Manchester United to boyhood club Everton earlier this summer and could well be the catalyst that sees Welbeck following him to Goodison Park. The two strikers were teammates and good friends, I believe, from their time at United and linked up for the national team.

In 2011/12, Welbeck and Rooney arguably had their best league campaign together. Rooney scored 27 goals and provided four assists in his 32 starts and two sub appearances, while Welbeck added another nine goals and four assists in 23 starts and seven appearances from the bench.

Danny Welbeck has made no public request to leave Arsenal, nor has he questioned his role under Arsene Wenger. However, game time could allude him when Arsenal welcome back Alexis Sanchez, with the Chilean likely to line up alongside Mesut Ozil in attacking-midfield.
