Why this loan transfer deal is GREAT news for Arsenal

This deal has not been officially announced yet and there could still be more developments on the future of the Arsenal and England right back Carl Jenkinson, but The Mirror are reporting that the details of a potential loan deal that would see the 23-year old playing in the Premier League for Sunderland next season.

But he would still be on the books with Arsenal because the potential move would only be a temporary loan move lasting for a single season. The report also claims that Arsene Wenger is keen to get the talented youngster, who is also a long time Gooner himself, to sign an extension to his current contract and that would be great news for Jenkinson and the club.

He has already come on in leaps and bounds after playing for another Premier League club in West Ham and I have a feeling that the Gunners would regret losing him simply because we already have good options for his position in the shape of Hector Bellerin and Mathieu Debuchy. The Frenchman is almost 30 and has had injury problems so who knows what the situation will be in a year?

The paper also says that West Ham and Southampton want Jenkinson, who is currently preparing to help England conquer Europe in the 2015 under 21 tournament, and I think that any of the three clubs would be a good move for him and for us. But will he ever be a regular for Arsenal?

  1. For me, the Jenks loan move is ideal. It keeps Arsenal’s options open for the future and it gives Jenks playing experience during this period when AFC are flush with capable RBs. Perfect.

    1. Getting older, being more precise, and committing less errors would help Jenks cement a place in the Arsenal squad in the future. It’s a great move for all parties involved.

      1. This is unlikely to happen but it would be a great deal for anyone involved.

        First of all, a move to West Ham would be better for Jenks as he is already settled in London and can look forward to playing European football. The 2m being quoted is unnecessary as we don’t need the money.

        There are rumours of Podolski moving to turkey for 1.5m. If we could weasle him into jenks loan deal that would be great as he would thrive in their 4-4-2 system. This will help us as he can take points of the big teams much like lukaku used to do for Chelsea.

    2. Exactly! I personally think a lot of fans are forgetting that Debuchy is a quality, international RB. Both his injuries suffered this season were incredibly unfortunate, but not injuries likely to recur and have ongoing problems with. Bellerin has had an exceptional breakout season, but Debuchy offers a lot more defensively, and has great delivery into the box. With Walcott or Ox likely to see a lot more playing time on the right this coming season I can see Debuchy being first choice as he has a more mature defensive game.
      Damn…. A few seasons prior we had Santos and a very young Jenkinson covering for the injured Gibbs and Sagna, with the defensively non-existent Podolski and Theo on the wings… I remember Farfan just having an absolute field-day one game!

      1. But using Bellerin as a defensive Winger sub when trying to hold a lead could also be a great option to have while trying to hold a slender lead.

    3. Mou is not the kinda person to make transfer dealings with………. If Cech knows in his heart that he really wants to come to arsenal, He should hand in a transfer request and make Mou appear foolish

      Opinion divided, what do you think?

  2. this could be his final loan….if he goes on a third season of loan he might as well make a permanent move

    hes playing week in week out 90mins every game…hes improving

    1. If he’s improving on his loan spells why is that any indication it may be his last loan?

  3. if he really wants to improve his game, he should go to spain. maybe work with david moyes. Playing in another league will improve his technical ability.

  4. On a side note Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Wenger has personally spoken with Kondogbia…
    IMO he seems a reporter who never reports any smoke without fire. He reports interest which never materializes into an actual transfer as many do as they can only report what the clubs tell them, but I actually rate him as credible.
    I see a lot of commenter’s on here referring to him as a ‘pure DM’ which I, simply don’t agree with as he has spent a lot of time playing B2B. The fact that he is a tad more versatile than our other rumoured targets leads me to personally speculate the interest may be real. With Coquelin and Arteta on the books already I personally think if Wenger is to look seriously at another midfielder they will have the ability to compete for multiple positions. (Vidal, Schneiderlin, Kondogbia). Could be interesting!

    1. IMO Vidal is best among 3 you mentioned. I don’t watch much Juventus matches but watching him in Copa I saw his brilliance. He can carry whole team with him. He can score he can assist and he can defend. I am not sure if Wenger has any interest him in or not but he is WC.
      He might leave Juventus as they signed Khedira and they already have pogba as well. All 3 are good players and no one would like to bw on bench.
      Khedira left real to get more games so either Pogba or Vidal will leave. If Vidal leaves then Wenger should try signing him. He will make good pair with Sanchez as well and Sanchez can lure him to us.
      only problem is we have many players in MF. Whom Wenger will play is his headache. Coq was fantastic last season and it will be sad to bench him. Now Wilshire also showing his form and we have Ramsey who wants to play as MF and not as winger. Cazorla was also brilliant.

      1. I definitely agree. I’m just personally a bit puzzled by the rumoured 25mil asking fee considering United had a rumoured 40million bid knocked back last season. I’m under the impression it’ll be Pogba who leaves… I could be wrong though and if we did manage to pull off the Vidal transfer I’d be ecstatic!!
        Kondogbia possesses that rare blend of technique and physicality and Wenger definitely has a hard on when it comes to technique! Spreads the play with surprising intelligence for a 22y.o. as well. Vidal would demand first-team assurances, whereas I feel Kondogbia, due to his age would be less put off by rotation and fighting for his place while he develops his game further under Wenger. Ozil and Sanchez came as far, far more complete players citing a desire to improve their game as a key factor.

      2. @ mall gooner

        If you watched him at the Copa’s (you should watch him more than that if your going to come to conclusions after 2 games) then you’d see he does not play very defensive, he has the freedom of the pitch and attacks at every opportunity. A lot of his “defensive work” is high up the pitch not when he’s holding

  5. Jekinson is a promising young star ,we nid to do everything to keep him. At the same time we must get rid of d remaining dead woods such sanogo, poldoski,arteta,flamini &cambell so as to give space for atleast 3 world class signings. Next season will be great for d GUNNERS!

  6. Apparently Vidal was just in a car crash and has been charged with drunk driving. Don’t see Arsene going for him now.

  7. Personally I want Jenko to remain at West Ham as they are in Europa league qualifiers so that he can experience about that competition and can get much more games under his belt.

    1. I want him to stay there cause slaven bilic is there manager now. I think he can turn out to be a top manager

  8. Hahaha just read that Mourinho wants our Ox in a deal for Cech. The Spitefull One can get f@#ked.

    1. he can have lukas podolski to replace drogba
      good finisher check
      past his best check
      not mobile check

    2. All we have to do is offer the 10 mill for cech sit back and leave it to him to force the move Maureen can’t do a thing about it the deal will go through with us getting cech and Maureen getting f..k all brilliant ha ha!!!

  9. Young, British and with bags of potential. He’s improving season on season and is a gooner who has red in his blood. This is a good move for all involved, though a move to Southampton would be my preferred place for him. They play higher quality footy and if Clynne is going to Liverpool like it’s suggested then he’d slot in as first choice RB in a system that is close enough to Arsenal’s to give him some high quality experience. Add to that, he’d be getting some European experience and you have the perfect fit. The distance/shock is far less moving south to Soton then moving north to Sunderland – I get the impression if we can make that work it’ll be far more beneficial.

  10. There’s a story going round that AW is still after Morgan Shingerling but are playing silly over coughing up £25 M for him and that they may use Jenks as part of the deal as Southampton have shown interest in taking the player..

    Please let us get a DM, ST and GK at the very least or we are dust!

  11. I checked out our first 12 EPL fixtures in the fast coming new season, I was shocked to see how we are bombarded with tough fixtures.

    This will make Wenger expedite actions on transfer market front.

    August 8 West Ham United (H)

    August 15 Crystal Palace (A)

    August 22 Liverpool (H)

    August 29 Newcastle United (A)

    September 12 Stoke City (H)

    September 19 Chelsea(A)

    September 26 Leicester City(A)

    October 3 Manchester United (H)

    October 17 Watford (A)

    October 24 Everton (H)

    October 31 Swansea City (A)

    November 7 Tottenham Hotspur (H

    1. The beauty of the PL – is almost impossible to list out nearly a third of your season’s fixtures without it looking tough. Just having an away game, against anyone, is tough enough.

    1. It is because they are worried Clyne will be snapped up by somebody else and they may need to replace him!
