Danny Welbeck was taken straight to hospital after suffering an ankle injury during Arsenal's goalless Europa League draw with Sporting CP, head coach Unai Emery has confirmed.

Welbeck returned to the starting line-up for the match at the Emirates Stadium and wasted an early chance to break the deadlock.

His second opportunity saw the England international head straight at Renan Ribeiro, but the striker landed badly on his ankle and left the field on a stretcher.

Emery confirmed the injury was "serious" but the Gunners will wait to learn the full extent of the 27-year-old's issue.

Emery confirms Welbeck has undergone surgery

Emery confirms Welbeck has undergone surgery Arsenal manager Unai Emery has confirmed that Danny Welbeck has undergone surgery after he suffered a broken ankle. As quoted by the Mirror, Gunners boss Emery spoke to the media following his side’s 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers and alluded to the extent of Welbeck’s injury. The England international was forced off on a stretcher on Thursday night as Arsenal were held to a 0-0 draw against Sporting CP in the Europa League. This prompted fears that Welbeck had sustained significant damage to his ankle. These concerns have been proven correct in recent times, with Emery confirming that the former Manchester United star has suffered a break. Delivering the news on Welbeck’s current condition and confirming that the player has undergone surgery, Arsenal manager Emery said: “He had an operation on Friday. It’s a big injury but the outcome (on whether he can return this season) the doctor can answer that better than me.” Welbeck sees his contract in North London come to its expiration date at the end of the season, leaving Arsenal with a decision to make over his future at the club. Irrespective of his contractual situation at the Emirates, though, it seems certain that Welbeck will face several months on the sidelines as he begins his rehabilitation.

"The worst news tonight is these injuries," the Spaniard told a media conference. "We think [they are] serious injuries.

"He has been taken to hospital. We are going to wait [for updates].

"Danny was working well. He is a very good person, his commitment to us is very big.

"This injury is very big for him, for us and for everyone."

Arsenal also saw defender Stephan Lichtsteiner depart with an injury with 16 minutes remaining, and Emery hopes that is not as serious as Welbeck's problem.

"Lichtsteiner is muscular," he added. "We will know [more] about his injury tomorrow."

Nicolas Pepe lined up as potential Danny Welbeck replacement.
Following a serious injury to forward Danny Welbeck in midweek, Arsenal are thought to be stepping up their interest in Lille attacker Nicolas Pepe, the Metro report. Welbeck fell awkwardly against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday night and his ankle injury could put him on the sidelines for the rest of the season, with his contract expiring in the summer. That means Gunners boss Unai Emery is likely to dip into the transfer market in January to bolster his attacking options, with £44 million rated Pepe high on their list of targets. The 23-year-old has started the campaign in Ligue 1 in fine form, already finding the back of the net on eight occasions, setting up a further five for his teammates, which has helped Lille to third in France’s top tier after 12 league fixtures. The Ivory Coast international, who has been linked with a move to the Emirates previously, is also being monitored by fellow European giants Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Barcelona, and if the youngster continues to impress, may well earn a big move before the end of the season.
