West Ham officials appear to be having second thoughts about turning Carl Jenkinson’s loan deal into permanent move at the end of the season, according to the latest reports.

The Hammers have been impressed by the standard of the player’s performances since arriving at Boleyn Ground and not so long ago it looked as though they will be attempting to make his stay permanent.

However, West Ham appear to be showing interest in former player Glen Johnson and may decide to bring the former England international to Boleyn Ground instead. This would definitely save the club some cash as the 30-year-old will be available on a free transfer, but will also cause problems for Carl Jenkinson and Arsenal.

Would Wenger cut his losses with Ozil if clubs approached him in the summer? 2

Posted on March 29, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has question marks over his future with the Londoners in the summer, with manager Arsene Wenger likely to consider his options. The German international cost Arsenal £42.5M in the summer of 2013 from Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid, but hasn’t proven he was worth such outlay yet.

He was regarded as one of the best playmakers previously, due to the assists and chances he’d make in Spain, but Ozil has since slipped down the pecking after making the move to London. The 26-year-old has scored three goals and made five assists in 14 league games, taking his entire tally with Arsenal to 11 goals, 21 assists in 62 games for Wenger’s side.
