Carl Jenkinson looks set to leave Arsenal this summer, with Brighton and Newcastle keen to bring the 25-year-old full-back in. Crystal Palace failed to sign Jenkinson in January, but he needs to leave the Emirates to kickstart his career. A promising season on loan with West Ham aside, Jenkinson has not done enough to prove he deserves to stay with the Gunners, and needs to sign for a new club to establish himself as a Premier League footballer.

It looks like Carl Jenkinson may finally be leaving Arsenal.
The 25-year-old full-back is a summer transfer target for both Brighton – following their promotion to the Premier League – and Newcastle – who look likely to join the Seagulls in the top flight.
Aside from an impressive loan spell with West Ham, Jenkinson has yet to live up to the potential he showed as a youngster at the Emirates, and leaving Arsenal would be the best decision for Jenkinson to make.
Moving to a new club would give him the chance to establish himself as a first-team regular – something which is never going to happen with the Gunners.
But, what other players in the Premier League need to move for the sake of their careers? talkSPORT have picked one player from every top flight side who could do with securing a transfer this summer.
