Carl Jenkinson has already been linked with a loan move to Aston Villa in January – according to reports in the Evening Standard West Ham are looking to take him on a third spell from Arsenal.

There’s absolutely no doubting the fact Hector Bellerin is the man ahead of Jenkinson but Arsene Wenger has called upon the once-capped England international a couple of times in the League Cup this season. However, he’s managed just the one Premier League outing.

During the past two seasons we’ve seen the 24 year old have loans with West Ham – his most recent last term when Jenkinson sustained a serious knee injury that has kept him out for the majority of 2016.

It’s claimed West Ham and Aston Villa aren’t the only clubs in for him though as Hull and Swansea were also credited with an interested. Yet it was concluded Wenger may be reluctant to offload Jenkinson at all should Mathieu Debuchy leave in the New Year.

Another player that could finally be on the move full time is Wojciech Szczesny. The keeper joined Roma on loan in the summer of 2015 where he’s remained ever since.

Italian reports – via talkSPORT – say Roma are now looking to do a permanent deal in January having turned down the chance to sign the Pole for £15m last summer – they didn’t have the funds so opted to extend his loan at the time.
