Jenkinson is just waiting on clearance from the Finnish FA.
Wenger believes the international recognition is a reward for his consistent performances, standing in for injured right-back Bacary Sagna.
"I am happy that his potential has been acknowledged by Roy Hodgson, so that is good news," Wenger said.
"Carl is a guy with massive potential and I believe the positive of that is it will improve his belief, and that is very important for him in my opinion."
