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.
