South London giants Crystal Palace are reportedly plotting a move for Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson this summer.

According to the Daily Star, Crystal Palace want to sign the Arsenal right-back as a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

England junior international Wan-Bissaka made his breakthrough at Crystal Palace last season.

He made 35 appearances in the Premier League and the young defender was one of the best right-sided defenders in the top flight of English football.

His form for Crystal Palace earned the player a big money move to Manchester United this summer.

The Red Devils signed the 21-year-old in a £50m deal to make him the second summer signing at Old Trafford after Welsh international Daniel James.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the fifth most expensive player in the history of the club.

Only the quartet of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Angel Di Maria and Fred have been involved in more expensive transfers.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has already made his debut for Manchester United during the preseason tour of Australia.

He could be replaced at Crystal Palace by Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson who has just one year left on his contract with the Gunners.

The lifelong Arsenal supporter has been transfer-listed by Gunners boss Unai Emery.
