Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger gave an injury update on Hector Bellerin.
Wenger revealed while speaking to reports during a press conference today.
Speaking on Bellerin’s return and also allowing Jenkinson to leave…
“It is not necessarily linked with that. Jenkinson is a possibility to go to Palace, yes, but it has not been finalised. It is basically down to him to find an agreement with them.”
on Mertesacker’s contract…
“He has an option that we have taken. There was no negotiation, there was just an option that we took up.”
Santi Cazorla is no closer to a return while Grant Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey are still yet to hit their straps as Arsenal’s title hopes fade away.
“I expect it to be a very quiet period because we have (Danny) Welbeck coming back now offensively, we are very strong,” he said.
“We have many, many players who can come in and overall I don’t expect to do anything special.”
