Club doing everything possible to sign this star this January

Crystal Palace are doing everything possible to sign Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson, according to IBtimes UK.

Wenger has told the defender he can find a new club this month and Arsenal are willing to accept a permanent bid or a loan bid with an option to buy at the end of the season.

Crystal Palace are interested in signing Jenkinson on loan and are hoping to beat a host of clubs to the defender’s signature.

Swansea City, Watford and West Ham are the other Premier League clubs interested in the defender. Championship side Aston Villa are also keeping tabs on the defender but it is Palace who are believed to be showing the most interest.

Palace boss Sam Allardyce worked with Jenkinson at West Ham two seasons ago and he is keen to bring the defender to selhurst Park this month.

Jenkinson is not the only right back set to leave the Emirates this winter as Debuchy is also expected to leave the club.

The English defender joined Arsenal from Charlton Athletic in 2011 with so much expectations but he has failed to fulfill his potential here. At 24, a move to a club where he would be playing regularly could help boost his confidence and then help him relaunch his career.
