Soon the Academy Arsenal could welcome a new member within their ranks. This is Carl Jenkinson, defender born in 1992, which militates in Charlton Athletic, English League One team.
Jenkinson grew up in the youth of the 'Addicks' first team and made his debut in December last year. Since its inception Jenkinson has never left his post and is now the proprietor of the Charlton right-back. Last fall, the boy claimed a loan period from the ranks dell'Eastbourne Borough, semi-professional English that was used to gain experience and have a first comparison with the most experienced and savvy players.
Jenkinson over to fill the role of right-back can occupy the position of central defender and in case of an emergency LEFT back to being a real wild card of the defense.
It has representatives in England with the shirt dell'Under17, but later decided to play with the shirt of 18 and 19 of Finland, as his mother is of Finnish nationality. He is currently the captain of the Finnish national Under19. But still do not know the intentions of the boy for the rest of his international career and no one knows who will dress shirt.
After being close to Manchester United in 2009, Jenkinson's future should be Arsenal. The Gunners, in fact, seem to be the team most interested in him. The contract with Charlton Jenkinson expire at the end of this season and Arsenal seem to be willing to bring the young defender's Academy in paying the £ 250,000 compensation to Charlton.
