Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson is wanted by five Premier League clubs and may be allowed to leave the Emirates Stadium following the acquisition of Southampton defender Calum Chambers - but only on loan.

According to the Daily Star, Newcastle United and West Ham are among five English clubs keen to secure the 22-year-old’s services. Sunderland, Hull City and Swansea City are also in the hunt for the one-time England international.

Jenkinson faces stiff competition at Arsenal

Despite the departure of France international Bacary Sagna, Jenkinson can expect to spend most of the 2014/15 campaign on the substitutes’ bench if he fails to secure a loan move away from the north London outfit.

Arsenal have already signed Sagna’s international team-mate Mathieu Debuchy, from Newcastle, and the 28-year-old will be the Gunners’ first-choice right-back for the foreseeable future.

Chambers, who is still just 19, also plays at right-back - although there is talk that Wenger may attempt to transform the England Under-19 international into a central defender.

Wenger wants to keep Jenkinson

Arsene Wenger may have spent £12 million on signing Debuchy, along with the planned £16 million expenditure on Chambers, but the veteran Gunners’ boss believes boyhood Arsenal fan Jenkinson does have a future at the Emirates Stadium.

However, Wenger accepts that the next 12 months will be difficult for Jenkinson if he stays with the FA Cup winners, and may subsequently encourage him to move elsewhere before returning next summer.
