The 23-year-old having a routine medical in North London and will sign to a five-year contract after agreeing personal terms.

Welbeck was thought to be joining the Gunners on an initial loan deal but the England international of Ghanaian parentage opted for a permanent deal.

Arsenal moved for Welbeck after missing out on signing Radamel Falcao – who is heading to Manchester United – from French club Monaco.

He is expected to fill the void created by the injury to Olivier Giroud.
