Available Arsenal 25-year-old a target for PL club as Gunners prepare to offload trio - report
By Harvey Byrne
Arsenal full-back Carl Jenkinson is a target for Premier League rivals Swansea as the Gunners prepare for a clear out, according to a report.
The Mirror have claimed on their website that the 25-year-old is interesting the Swans as the north London club want to offload each of him, Mathie Debuchy and Kieran Gibbs.
It is also said that Arsene Wenger’s side will listen to offers for both Calum Chambers and Jack Wilshere, but they could still have a future at the club if a club doesn’t meet their valuation.
Jenkinson has been a part of the Arsenal team after the right-back made the switch in the summer of 2011 for a fee of just £1million.
He has since played 62 times for the club in total and was also capped by the senior England team in November 2012.

However, last season Jenkinson played just five times for the club in all competitions and has also gone into the final year of his contract.
Football Insider verdict:
It is clear from his lack of appearances in the last campaign that Jenkinson’s future lies away from Arsenal. His signing was always a slight strange one given that Charlton allowed him to leave for just £1million and that he had played just nine times for the Addkicks first team. However, there was some hope that Wenger had unearthed another gem and many felt as though he could still get better with age on his side in the past. However, in recent seasons it has become clear that he simply is not good enough and Arsenal must now cut their losses with the player sooner rather than later.
