British media has been filling in with Arsenal star Carl Jenkinson moving to Sunderland next season. As per reports, Sunderland have raced ahead against all the clubs by offering a contract offer worth £2million-a-year for the right-back.

Jenkinson enjoyed a successful season on loan with West Ham United appearing in more 36 matches, which helped the Hammers secure a solid 12th position in the league.

Jenkinson appears to have his heart set on a stay with West Ham but Sunderland’s offer to pay the player’s wages in full might sway away Arsene Wenger in letting the player join Stadium of Light next season.

Sunderland are only interested in bringing the England U-21 right-back for just one season with no option to buying him. Arsenal still regard Jenkinson as a first-team material but with Hector Bellerin and Mathieu Debuchy in front of him, he will most likely be loaned out next season as well.

Arsenal have no intention of selling the young right-back and will look to loan him to develop him in to a regular starter for them in near future.

Arsenal are battling to commit Bellerin to a long-term stay with the club amid the interest from Barcelona. Some quarters of the Emirates hierarchy are convinced that Bellerin will leave for the Spanish side when they come calling.

Thus, Arsenal do not want to sell Jenkinson and will only loan him ahead of next season. For now, Sunderland are in pole position to sign the young star but with West Ham and other Premier League sides lurking behind them.
