Why It Is Really Important For Arsenal To Keep Hold Of This Under Rated Youngster At The Emirates

Arsenal will try to push for new players in the summer transfer window, as they try to fill in the voids left in their squad by the departure of the veterans. Players like Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini will not be part of the team at the Emirates for next season. Further, there is a need to add more defenders to the current squad as well, as it has not been really solid over the years. However, the thing is that though adding more new players is always important, retaining the old ones is a key factor for success too.

Arsene Wenger’s side is trying their best to hold on to most of their current players, who might be linked away from the north London club in the current transfer window. Wenger knows that he can’t win big titles with a squad with limited number of players, due to the large number of competitions they will be competing in. Along with that, the Euros could also tire down some of his main players.

One such player whose future at the club is uncertain is an England international Carl Jenkinson, who has been sent away on loan to West Ham United for the previous couple of campaigns and is now back at Arsenal. The 24 year old right-back had fallen down the pecking order to Spaniard Hecter Bellerin and move away for a regular game time.

Further, with Mathieu Debuchy on the verge of an exit from the London based club, it might become really crucial for Wenger to retain Jenkinson now. The former Newcastle man, Debuchy, has not been having a great time recently, after an energetic start at Arsenal. He picked up various injuries and miss almost the entire 2014-15 campaign.

Also, he was sent away on loan to Bordeaux, in the January transfer window. With rumors earlier this year, suggesting a permanent department for the Frenchman, Jenkinson’s role in the side will be even more crucial than before.

The ex Charlton superstar has looked much better during his time with the Hammers, as he has grown in confidence and quality, making a total of 52 appearances for them, over the two terms. He is still young and looks better now that he has been getting some regular football.

He signed a new deal with Arsenal last season and is committed to Wenger’s cause, with the French boss surely including him in his future plans, if Debuchy does leave. This would really good news for the player, who has been fighting hard to impress Wenger and get back a place in the starting eleven. Whether or not things work out for him remains to be seen, though we surely will be in a bit of trouble if he does make a move away.
