Carl Jenkinson is a player who would strengthen Leeds United

Leeds are sure to be linked with a host of players yet again this summer, with the possibility of them being back in the top flight still very much viable.

Marcelo Bielsa is not giving up and neither are his side, having performed so well this season.

It’s still conceivable for Leeds to win the league or have to battle through the play-offs, either way, they have done remarkably well this campaign.

They do not want to crumble at the last minute but now is also the right time for them to consider who they will sign in the summer, Premier League football or not.

Defensively, there is work to be done and Leeds United could strengthen their right-back position by acquiring Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson.

Jenkinson, (who is valued at £2.2 million on Transfermarkt) has recently made a revival in terms of his Arsenal career, considering that he has played seven games this season.

It’s far from a lot but, keeping in mind that Jenkinson couldn’t secure a regular place in Birmingham’s or West Ham’s team in his last two loan spells, he has done well to make an impact at the Emirates.

At the age of 27, Jenkinson is no longer a future star and with every game, he needs to consistently deliver.

Luke Ayling is Leeds’ only out-and-out right-back option at the club and whether they gain promotion or not, that is something they need to change.

With the potential for injury and suspension at any time, Carl Jenkinson is more than good enough to feature regularly for Leeds, becoming their first-choice in that role.
