Startin to see hear more and more about the possibility of Arsenal sending right-back Carl Jenkinson out on loan this month. Since the return of Bacary Sagna from injury, Jenkinson has played very little.
One team that approached Arsenal about a loan deal was Crystal Palace, but the right-back was interested in a drop down to the Championship.
The challenge that Arsene Wenger faces with sending Jenkinson out on loan, is making sure that he does not leave himself short of numbers at the back should Sagna get injured again.
Johan Djourou has already been shipped off to Hannover on loan, and with Sebastien Squillaci also expected to leave the club this month, Arsenal will need to be careful that they don’t let their squad run too thin.
