Arsenal has announced that Danny Welbeck is out for an indefinite period of time following not one but two surgeries.
Welbeck, 27, was stretchered off the pitch with a nasty-looking ankle injury on Thursday in the Europa League.

And Arsenal said that Welbeck underwent a second pre-planned surgery to go along with the corrective surgery from Thursday’s incident.
Both procedures went well, without complications. Danny will now recuperate and start his rehabilitation. It’s too early to say how long this will take.
Welbeck has 69 goals in 304 career games between Arsenal, Manchester United, Preston North End, and Sunderland.
His injury leaves little striker depth behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, though Alex Iwobi could certainly manage some work there. Youngster Emile Smith-Rowe has performed well in limited action, and Edward Nketiah is also an intriguing youth talent.
