Failing to qualify for the Champions League might spell the end of Arsene Wenger at Arsenal this summer but the French mastermind has other plans, as he is already planning for the future. The Gunners are in the transfer market, searching for some of the finest talents in Europe recently.
They have been linked with a number of exciting players but Arsenal will also have to keep an eye on the players already on their books. A couple of first-team stars are extensively linked with an exit and Wenger will be busy trying to sort out their futures. But he also has another headache coming up this summer, as he will once again have to assess if players he sent out on loan this season, are good enough to play regularly at Emirates.
One such player, currently on loan at Birmingham City is the full-back, Carl Jenkinson.
Having joined Arsenal back in 2011 from Charlton Athletic, the 26-year old was regarded as one of the best at that time in his role but he has failed to keep up to his reputation and has never established himself in the first team under Arsene Wenger. He made just 62 appearances for Arsenal across all competitions, before the start of the current season and has not been able to show any form in his loan stint as well.
He picked up a shoulder injury early in the season that kept him out of the first half and though was given a chance at left-back for a few games, has failed to impress Gary Monk and did not even make it to the squad for the previous league…
