Arsenal are reportedly moving to sign Charlton's 19 year old Carl Jenkinson in the summer transfer period, with the defender believed to have star potential.

Jenkinson has previously represented England on an international youth level, but switched to Finland on account of his Finnish mother.


The wonderkid is loved by Charlton fans, who say he is one of the best defenders they've seen at the club for years. Jenkinson came from the Charlton youth academy, and made a natural progression into the senior side this year.

The youngster made his debut against Hartlepool last month, drawing praise for his efforts. Arsene Wenger is rumoured to be interested in Jenkinson because under his famous youth development policy, the Arsenal manager believes he can develop the Charlton man into a star defender of the likes of John Djourou or Thomas Vermaelen.
