'It's my first time there... I can't wait'

As a Premier League footballer, Danny Welbeck is used to playing around the world - but one place he hasn’t visited is China.

The Arsenal forward will be part of our touring party next month as we visit Shanghai and Beijing, and he can’t wait to meet our fans there.

“It’s going to be my first time there so it’s a country that I’m really looking forward to visiting,” Welbeck told Arsenal Player. “Obviously to go there for the first time it’s going to be very nice to take it all in.

“The fanbase out there is very large, so to get some interaction with the fans and for them to see us at first hand is great.

“It’s great to go on these pre-season tours and bond with the fans. I did miss the previous tour through injury and hopefully this time I’ll be out there and having the pleasure of meeting all the fans and playing in front of them.”
