The Arsenal and England right back Carl Jenkinson may not have been playing for the Gunners this season. In fact he has spent the last 18 months across London with our Premier League rivals West Ham. But he has been with Arsenal since the summer of 2011 and so has spent a lot of time under the coaching and training methods of Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal back room staff.
There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours this month saying that Matthieu Debuchy is set to leave the club, with the player making it quite clear that he is desperate to get some first team football to try and regain his place in the France national team ahead of this summers Euro2016 in Paris.
This is a tricky subject as poor Mathieu Debuchy was unluckily injured soon after joining Arsenal and made only 11 starts for the Gunners last season, and he could only watch from the sidelines as Hector Bellerin stepped up and made the position his own.
Remember a few weeks ago, Arsenal fans, when the new manager of West Ham issued us with a stark warning that we would find his team an impossible nut to crack when they turned up at the Emirates stadium next Sunday for our opening game of the new Premier League season?
As the Arsenal team gears up to the pre-season with most of the players reporting to training, the activity on transfer rumour mill is showing no decline. Though these reports can’t be taken on face value, they can’t be shoved off easily too.
