Alan Smith does not believe that Danny Welbeck’s arrival at Arsenal will transform the Gunners into Premier League title contenders.

Asked if Welbeck’s arrival makes Arsenal title contenders, Smith told talkSPORT: “I don’t think so. In all fairness, I still think they’re short behind Chelsea and Manchester City.
