West Ham are hopeful of signing Arsenal's right back, Carl Jenkinson, on a permanent deal in the summer. The Gunners are willing to let him leave, but for a fee of £10 million, which the Hammers are set to match.

The 23-year-old has been very impressive in his loan spell under Sam Allardyce and has established himself and the team's first choice right back, making 23 league appearances this term. Jenkinson cost the Gunners just £1 million when he signed from Charlton Athletic in 2011, and they are set to make a £9 million profit on a player regarded as surplus to requirements at The Emirates Stadium.

He has one international cap to his name after appearing as a substitute for England against Sweden in November 2012, and is hoping to add more games to his CV as he continues to play first team Football. He made 37 appearances in the Premier League for Arsenal over three seasons, and with Calum Chambers, Héctor Bellerin and Mathieu Debuchy all ahead of him in the pecking order at Arsenal, he is going to struggle to get game time.

Sam Allardyce is taking his team to Arsenal on Saturday in the Premier League and the English right back is ineligible to play because he cannot feature against his parent club. The West Ham co-chairman, David Gold is keen on making a permanent move for Jenkinson after tweeting: "He will not play against Arsenal.

This year. dg."

West Ham fans will be pleased to hear the club wants him full time, and for a player with years ahead for progression, the fee isn't too expensive either. He's a good player with potential and has settled in nicely at The Boleyn Ground with West Ham looking to build for the future.

Jenkinson has never scored for West Ham and only has one senior goal to his name, and that was for Arsenal on the final day of last season in a 2-0 win against Norwich City.

He gets forward regularly, and provides good crosses for the big men up front and is defensively a good player who has been one of their most reliable assets, as has Aaron Cresswell at left back.
