Carl Jenkinson’s future has long been up in the air at Arsenal.

The right-back has spent the past two seasons out on loan at West Ham United, although his 2015-16 campaign was cut short by a serious knee injury in January. In that time, he has proved himself capable at a Premier League level but his chances of regular football with Arsenal still appear slim.

But it would certainly appear that he wants to create more memories at Arsenal going forward.

He sent out this tweet last night of him scoring his first and only goal for Arsenal in a 2-0 win over Norwich City in May 2014 – attached with a telling message:


Jenkinson certainly wants to have an impact at Arsenal going forward but he faces an uphill battle.

First he must fight back from his injury and prove his fitness to the Arsenal medical staff. Then he needs to fight for his place with the likes of Hector Bellerin, Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers all serious competition for the right-back slot at The Emirates.

Hopefully Jenkinson can fight back from his injury and fulfill his Arsenal ambition.
