Three players likely to leave Arsenal this season
- The Gunners need a squad overhaul and these players might be sacrificed in that quest.
#2 Carl Jenkinson
As we all know, Arsenal is heavily linked to Celtic's most-coveted asset Kieran Tierney. The 22-year-old left back is valued at £25 million and the Gunners are highly interested in bringing him to the Emirates this summer, but they are yet to strike a deal with the Scottish-treble winners.
Celtic are holding out for a £20million-plus straight cash fee for Tierney and Arsenal are trying to drive the price down, but it seems imminent that Emery and Co. would reach an agreement with Celtic in the coming days.
But latest reports say that Arsenal is happy to include Carl Jenkinson in the deal, as Celtic look to revamp their back four for the upcoming season. The English man earns nearly 45 grand a week and it's obvious he will have to take a massive pay cut, reportedly a cut of 35k, to join Celtic.
On the other hand, if any deal with Wilfried Zaha materializes, Arsenal will look to include Jenkinson as Roy Hodgson is in search of a new right-back as a replacement for Aaron Wan Bissaka, who joined Manchester United for £51 million.Published 05 Jul 2019, 23:26 IST
