Welbeck enjoying Arsenal link up

New striker Danny Welbeck is confident Arsenal's England core can boost chances of a successful Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

Welbeck joined the Gunners in a £16m deadline day switch from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old came off the bench to replace goalscorer Wayne Rooney in the second half of Wednesday's 1-0 friendly win over Norway at Wembley.

Arsenal midfielders Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were named in the starting XI, while defender Calum Chambers, signed from Southampton in the summer, came off the bench.

Welbeck believes having so many team-mates together within the international set-up can only have a knock-on effect.

"It is going to be a massive positive for us," Welbeck said. "We will be seeing each other every single day and you obviously develop a much better understanding if you are working with one another on a consistent basis."
