Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson is expected to join West Ham United on a permanent deal this summer, as perDaily Star.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is planning to offload the 23-year-old full-back to West Ham on a permanent deal.
Carl Jenkinson is currently at West Ham on a season long loan deal and it is reported that the Gunners are not in a mood to have him back in the squad.
The Gunners have already Hector Bellerin and Mathieu Debuchy for the right-back role though Debuchy is injured at the moment but Bellerin has been superb and has no plans to give his place to anyone. Debuchy could even have to fight for his place after brilliant performances by the young Spaniard.
With further reports claimed that the Hammers are interested in Jenkinson's permanent deal in the summer window.
The 23-year-old has been in consistent form, he has played 21 Premier League games this season.
The Englishman was signed by Arsene Wenger from Charlton Athletic in 2011 but has never proved to be a consistent player for the Gunners. He was always a backup option for the right-back position. He made only 57 appearances for the North London side in his three seasons.
