Leicester have had a bid in excess of £20 Million rejected by Arsenal for the services of Calum Chambers.
The Gunners signed the English defender from Southampton in 2014, but after failing to earn a regular starting role after two years, was sent out on loan last season.
Chambers enjoyed a regular role with Middlesbrough last term, and has since returned to Arsenal, but had been linked with a possible exit this summer.
The 2016 Premier League champions Leicester have now tested the resolve of the North-London side with a bid believed to be in excess of £20 Million, but according to Sky Sports News, Arsenal have said that he is not available for a move.
Gabriel Paulista have already left the club this month, and Shkodran Mustafi is being targeted by Serie A sides today, which would leave our options slim at the back, and Chambers is now clearly a part of Arsene Wenger’s plans.
The 22 year-old played a role in our pre-season campaign, and has seemingly shown enough to be included in our playing squad for the term, but if he has shown enough, why have we been leaving him sidelined while fielding two left-backs (Kolasinac and Monreal) as makeshift defenders?
It’s a complicated and painful time being an Arsenal fan at present, and the transfer window has highlighted that hardship.
Is Chambers good enough to play regularly for Arsenal? Should we have jumped at the £20 Million offer?
