Arsenal Transfer Rumours: Have the Gunners Snapped Up Teenager, Carl Jenkinson?
Now from news of a full back leaving to one of a full back signing for the Gunners. Several reports indicate that the Gunners have completed the capture of Charlton youngster, Carl Jenkinson. While there has been no official confirmation on the Arsenal website and even Wenger has not stated anything, but Arsenal does have a habit of announcing the signing only at the end like we all know with Sebastian Squillaci last season and this may well be one of those cases.
Jenkinson, is a talented right back and even has the ability to play in any position across the back four although, many may see him as the understudy to Sagna and later on probably the future replacement to the French international.
Is it a good move for the Gunners?
Definitely. Arsenal’s current right back, Bacary Sagna is undoubtedly one of the world’s top right backs and has been on fire this season, making into the PFA Team of the Year. He has been consistent and has been a real force down the right flank.
While Eboue did offer some kind of back-up to the Frenchman, the performances of the Ivory Coast international has been shaky and adding Jenkinson provides some back up and depth to the squad. He can add some strength to the Arsenal bench and the added bonus is that he is an Arsenal fan. This is always a good thing as it always ensures commitment and dedication from the player as he gets an opportunity to fulfill a dream.
He is the kind of versatile player that can blossom into a good player with experience and the best chance he will get to improve is by learning from players like Sagna. While he might not get much game time, next season, he will improve with time and could be the perfect replacement for Sagna in three for years time.
