Gunners ready for next step

England striker Danny Welbeck (pictured) is ready to step things up a level next season and help fire Arsenal towards a real challenge for the Premier League title.

The 24-year-old was forced to sit out the closing weeks of the campaign following bruising on the bone around his knee, which saw him miss the FA Cup final victory over Aston Villa at Wembley. With a second successive cup success for the Gunners, there is a growing feeling Arsene Wenger's squad can now go on to push Chelsea and Manchester City in the battle for a long-overdue serious assault on the championship.

Welbeck, who was at the Emirates Stadium for the launch of Puma's 2015-2016 Arsenal home kit: "We definitely want to push on as a club, with the players we have got there is no reason why we should not be up there challenging for the tittle."
