Apart from the much maligned dearth of trophies, one of the more well known aspects of Arsene Wenger’s long reign at Arsenal has been the Frenchman’s outstanding work with identifying young prospects and moulding them into world beaters.

The whole episode of having to leave his dream club only to see the proposed move scuppered at the very end no doubt had a telling impact on Jenkinson as he was snapped looking very visibly upset in training amidst his other happier teammates.
