Chambers looking likely to switch sides in London!
Last week it was reported that Arsenal youngster Calum Chambers had been put up for loan by the club after Wenger agreed with other club officials, that it was in the best interests of everybody, for Chambers to gain some much needed experience away from North London.
As a result, many fellow Premier League clubs were reportedly in favour of taking a chance on the young Englishman, on a season long loan. The likes of Swansea, Palace, Bournemouth, Southampton and Watford were all considered, however apparently despite Southampton understandably being the preferred destination in the opinion of many Arsenal fans, it is instead the latter, Watford, that Chambers is set to join.
According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are set to allow Watford to sign the Englishman on a season long loan, in which Chambers will get regular playing time in the heart of defence and therefore gain some much needed experience. Such experience will boost Chambers’ confidence and ability and ultimately Gunners fans alike will hope that the investment Arsenal made in this 21 year old, was well worth it.
Chambers was a £16 million player from Southampton and managed to make 22 appearances for the Gunners overall last year. However despite an impressive start to his Arsenal career back in 2014, the inconsistency of his playing time has meant that ultimately his performances have dropped. Therefore a good spell away from the club is needed and hopefully he returns a much stronger and established defender, who has plenty more experience and is willing to lead the Arsenal back line for many years to come.
Is this a good move for Calum?
