'He's no Harry Kane' - Arsene Wenger has had his say on an Arsenal striker...

Arsene Wenger admits he wants to keep Danny Welbeck at Arsenal , but he’s not as prolific as England team-mate Harry Kane.

The former Manchester United striker joined the Gunners in 2014, but has been blighted with injuries since moving to London.

Despite his injury record, Wenger has defended Welbeck and insisted he is more than just goals and explained what makes him so vital to any side.

"I want to keep him because I believe he has gone through a torrid time," explained Wenger.

"He has come out well. I see signs in training now that are positive. If he can stay on the pitch and not be injured, I want him to stay here."

"I like him because he can play left, right or up front," he said.

In stark contrast to Welbeck, Tottenham’s star striker never seems to miss a game and can’t stop scoring.

But despite seeming set to finish as top scorer in the Premier League for the third season in a row, Wenger suggested Kane required a player as selfless as Welbeck to thrive.

"For me he is a useful player, first of all because of his quality.

“He might not be a goalscorer like Harry Kane for example, but for England he can perfectly play with Harry Kane because he can play on the flanks."
