Carl Jenkinson linked with West Ham move

Football News

Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson could be set to make a move to West Ham United in a bid to get more first team playing time.

The 22-year old right back has seen his chances at Arsenal limited due to Bacary Sagna’s form and performances in the same position.

Limited opportunities

Due to this, he has only managed 37 appearances in his three seasons at Arsenal, leaving him with a dilemma about his position at the club.

Also, the Gunners have recently completed the signing of ex-Newcastle player Mathieu Debuchy, which would halt any first team play for Jenkinson once again after Sagna moved to Manchester City.

England future?

Jenkinson is seen to be a young talent, with a potential future in the England right-back spot. A move away from the Emirates Stadium could boost his chances of this.

A deal of around £5million could be expected to the Hammers, according to The Daily Mail, but Arsene Wenger doesn’t want to let him go, looking to build a fully fledged title winning squad.

West Ham are looking to take on the player as a permanent transfer, but they could also go for a season long loan deal as they look to move up the Premier League table this season.

Other interested parties

The Hammers will have to hurry though, as Swansea City have already made contact with the right back and also Newcastle are in contention for his signature after Debuchy leaving this week.

Jenkinson would be a good fit for Sam Allardyce and as he’s only young, he could still have a really bright future ahead of him.
