Arsenal have reportedly had offers from Cagliari, Sassuolo and Hellas Verona for Carl Jenkinson.

Jenkinson is one of the players Arsenal are allegedly looking to offload this summer and the Gunners seem to be in luck since three Serie A clubs, Cagliari, Sassuolo and Hellas Verona, all apparently want to sign him.

According to Corriere dello Sport [via talkSPORT], a bidding war could be set to ‘erupt’ with all three clubs looking to bring the out-of-favour right-back to Italy.

The 25-year-old still has a year left on his current deal with his dream club, Arsenal. However, after only playing just over 400 minutes for the Gunners’ first team last season, it doesn’t look as if the club will offer him an extension.

After recovering from a lengthy lay-off due to a cruciate knee ligament injury he suffered while on loan at West Ham, Jenks lost all confidence and was dropped from the first team.

At the time, Arsene Wenger was supportive, saying, “What he’s going through at the moment for me is a bit normal, but very difficult to live [through] for a player. Why? Because you think you are there. … And then you play, and you realise that you are not as good as you think you should be.

“And you lose confidence. And he is going through that period at the moment, he has lost confidence. Because the Jenkinson you see at the moment is a Jenkinson who can play, but he is not completely Jenkinson because he has no confidence.”

However, this confidence never returned, and the English defender was forced to make a handful (seven) appearances for the youth squad instead in an attempt to maintain his fitness.

It’s a shame because everyone knows how much of a Gooner Jenks is and everyone wanted him to succeed but he’s just not good enough, especially when you compare him to Hector Bellerin.

Hopefully, Cagliari, Sassuolo or Hellas Verona are genuinely interested so he can move to Italy, get a fresh start, and play regular football.
