Gunners tell Tigers to cough up a little more for defender.
Arsenal have reportedly rejected a £3 million offer from Hull City for right-back Carl Jenkinson by telling them that they won’t sell for at least £5 million, according to the Metro.
The 22-year-old has now been deemed surplus to requirements at the Emirates Stadium following the arrivals of Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers this summer, and has subsequently been made available to move on elsewhere.
It was thought initially that Jenkinson would leave the club on loan, but reports have suggested that there has been some interest in landing him on a permanent deal.
Hull have apparently been the keenest, and have already put in a firm £3 million offer to tempt the Gunners to let him head north.
However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger values the England under-21 star at nearer £5 million, and has told the Tigers that he will not sell for any less.
Jenkinson is also thought to be keen on staying in London, which has put West Ham as favourites to land his signature should the Hammers be willing to meet his asking price.
Swansea City and Sunderland are also monitoring his situation, though no formal approach has yet been made by either side.
