Out-of-favour Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson is reportedly drawing interest from Crystal Palace as the London side look to replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
With Arsenal still in the hunt for the right players in the transfer market, they could be in for an unexpected gain by the sale of one of their outcast stars.
According to The Sun, Crystal Palace have rekindled their interest in Arsenal’s out-of-favour full-back, Carl Jenkinson, and are eyeing a cut-price deal for the star.
Both clubs have been at loggerheads ever since Gunners made a series of offers for the forward Wilfried Zaha.
Arsenal and Crystal Palace are yet to reach a total agreement over the Ivory Coast international. The Eagles have rejected Arsenal’s recent £40m bid
Wilfried, after returning from international duty has reportedly informed the club he wants to leave. The Gunners is his preferred destination.
While the club were working on a deal for the attacker, there were rumours the North Londoners were planning to include as many as three players in the reported deal.
Mohamed Elneny, Jenkinson and Calum Chambers were reportedly those players. Now the Eagles are trying to land the full-back in a separate deal as they search for a replacement for now Manchester United player Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
In spite of the long-term injury to Hector Bellerin, Carl failed to nail down a place in the side last campaign, with Unai generally preferring Ainsley Maitland-Niles, and there seems to be little future for him at the Emirates.
The north London ers are looking to add to their meagre transfer kitty by offloading several out-of-favour players. As for Jenkinson, Arsenal are believed to be wanting £5m for the 27-year-old.
