Carl Jenkinson days at Arsenal appear to be numbered.
The 24-year-old defender has failed to establish himself as first-team regular following two consecutive season-long loan spells as West Ham United and looks set to make a permanent move away from the Emirates.
Former Hammers manager and current Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce is looking to reunite with Arsenal defender at Selhurst Paro and is believed to be pushing for a permanent deal reportedly worth £3 million.
Sam Allardyce is beginning a rebuilding process at Premier League strugglers and is already eyeing moves for Jenkinson and Patrick Van Aanholt.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Carl Jenkinson is close to leaving the Emirates.
“It is possible he will move, yes. It could go in the next two or three days. I cannot tell you more because we haven’t reached a conclusion yet”, Arsene Wenger admitted.
In addition to Crystal Palace, Carl Jenkinson is being eyed by West Ham, Aston Villa, Swansea and Watford, but Sam Allardyce is confident he will wrap up a deal for the player he worked with at Hammers.
Jenkinson came back from a serious knee injury and is in desperate need of regular first-team action. Crystal Palace would be a perfect place for England defender to get back in form after a frustrating time at Arsenal.
Carl Jenkinson only player five games for Gunners this season.
His current deal with the North London club is valid for another 18 months.
