Danny Welbeck has been told he can leave Manchester United during the final week of the transfer window.
The news will be of particular interest to Arsenal and Tottenham, who are both big fans of Welbeck and have checked on his availability in the past.
With only two years remaining on his contract, United value Welbeck at around £15 million which would comfortably fit into the budgets of north London rivals Spurs and Arsenal.
The 23-year-old can play as a left-sided forward, as he often does for England, or through the middle. He has scored 20 Premier League goals in 90 appearances for United.
But with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez at the club, new United manager Louis van Gaal has decided Manchester-born Welbeck can leave Old Trafford.
