Irons hard on Jenkinson’s trail

CarlCarl Jenkinson remains very much a ‘live’ target for the Hammers despite little encouragement from Arsenal the player is for sale.

FA Cup-winning manager Arsene Wenger will decide soon whether the player will be allowed out on loan again this summer having claimed he’s not for sale.

But that hasn’t deterred the Irons from continuing talks with the north London club and agents.

And ClaretandHugh was told exclusively this evening (Sat): “The club has about ten targets and Jenkinson is very much one of them.

“Every day week attempts are made to progress the deals. But with clubs, players and agents involved it inevitably takes time.”

Obviously the arrival of a new manager could mean a change of direction on some targets but the Arsenal under-21 international is seen as a player any manger would be pleased to inherit.

  1. With Bellerin stepping up and Debuchy returning from injury, could really see this happening again…

  2. If he comes at the right price 6 million and not a penny more than get him but any more and there are better right backs out there

  3. Bubs I can’t believe you are coming around to my way of thinking ha ha !!! I think we have a better right back at the club in young oxford, I know everyone keeps telling me he is a centre half but introduce him into the team as a right back and I would sign Glen Johnson on a free transfer as cover.

  4. I would develop Henrey after watching him at Blackburn he has the turn of pace and he is hard in the tackle,depending on his wage demands Johnson might be worth a 3 year gamble if Jenkinson is not interested in a full move, but I am sure the new manager will know some good right back from the league they come from,
    Well apart from the Dutch league with there low grade don’t want to end up with a bearded
    Irish lady

  5. Does he fit our new style of play though? In my eyes he just a defensive Downing – makes runs and whips balls in, definitely a hippo respect the point tactic solely aimed at a big centre forward. Still worth a gamble though I guess
