Manchester United legend Gary Neville says Arsenal fullback Carl Jenkinson is close to an England call.

England coach Neville admits Jenkinson is on their radar.

“Carl Jenkinson has improved immeasurably over the last 12-months," he told talkSPORT.

“It was very difficult for him at the start of his Arsenal career last year because of the changes in the defence, there was never a settled defence for him to perform in.

"But you look at the way he’s performing now and he’s been magnificent for Arsenal in the early stages of the season.

“England have good options at right-back with Glen Johnson and Kyle Walker, and others as well, but he’s definitely someone who is being watched continuously...he’s definitely catching the eye.”
