The England international has scored four goals including the hat-trick in the Champions League since making the £16 million move to Emirates Stadium from Manchester United in the summer.
The Welshman is confident that the England international can score plenty more goals for the Gunners in the coming years.
Speaking to Talk Sport, he said:
Welbeck has everything to make himself an Arsenal legend. He has pace, strength and finishing.
He scored a very Thierry Henry-esque goal against Galatasaray, he just opened up his body and forced it into the side of the net.
He put in a great performance on Wednesday night. It was the first hat-trick of his career and that will be important for him. He can tick that off and set his sights on getting more goals.
Welbeck showed all his attributes in a well rounded performance against Galatsaray. He netted three excellent goals, firstly making a clever run and slotting past the keeper, then pouncing on a poor defensive header before again coolly slotting past the keeper. Finally, a similar run to the first, followed by a very clever dink over the outrushing keeper.

It was not only his goal scoring which caught the eye, as he also worked tirelessly from the first to last minute, providing an outlet for the home side throughout the match. He tracked back numerous times and isn’t afraid to put himself about for the team.
His first month as an Arsenal player has been promising and although he missed some chances in the initial stages, he immediately endeared himself to Gunners fans with his work rate and link play. The fans will be hoping this sort of all action performance is just the start of what can become an excellent season for the highly impressive Welbeck.
