Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson is a wanted man at Premier League club Crystal Palace this summer according to the latest reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.

Crystal Palace are in need of a new right-back after the sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United.

England junior international Wan-Bissaka was the first choice right-back at Crystal Palace last season which was his breakthrough campaign at the club.

His form for Crystal Palace prompted the interest of Manchester United who were able to sign him ahead of the new season billed to start during the second week of August.

Manchester United splashed the whopping sum of £50m to secure the signing of the 21-year-old defender.

Carl Jenkinson has one year left on his current deal at Arsenal and he has been transfer-listed at the club.

The 27-year-old is an Arsenal fan but that was not enough to get him more playing time under Gunners boss Unai Emery as he was restricted to eight games in all competitions last season.

Carl Jenkinson made his England national team debut while Roy Hodgson was the manager and both parties could reunite at Selhurst Park this summer with Crystal Palace boss Hodgson keen to sign him.
