Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson has been given the opportunity to prolong his career at the Emirates Stadium beyond this winter transfer window after club manager Unai Emery informed the England international right-back that he’s part of his plans.
According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal manager Unai Emery has told Jenkinson to stay and fight for a spot in the team despite transfer rumours linking him with a move away from North London.
Premier League club Burnley are one of the clubs said to be interested in a transfer for the former West Ham United and Charlton Athletic player.
The latest development on the future of Carl Jenkinson at Arsenal is coming on the back of the massive injury blow suffered by the Gunners.
First choice right-back Hector Bellerin has been ruled out for the remainder of this season following the serious knee injury that he suffered in the Gunners’ last Premier League game against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal breathed life into their top four hopes by beating Chelsea 2-0 courtesy first half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny but the victory came at a cost with Bellerin stretchered off in the second half of that game as a result of the knee injury.
