Report – Leeds United preparing to make a move for Arsenal man

Leeds United are targeting Arsenal’s Calum Chambers after missing out on signing Ben White from Brighton, according to Team Talk.

The Premier League new boys are on a spending spree as they look to strengthen their team and avoid heading back to the Championship.

They have just signed Rodrigo from Valencia in a club-record deal and they want to bolster their defence now, claims the Sun.

Chambers was one of the few players that Mikel Arteta trusted to start in his first few games as Arsenal’s manager.

However, the defender was unlucky and suffered a long-term injury early on in Arteta’s reign.

He has remained sideline and he has been told that he can leave the Emirates this summer.

This is because the Gunners have been on a spending spree this summer and they will have at least four new defenders that have joined them since Arteta became the club’s manager.

Chambers isn’t the only Arsenal defender that the Premier League new boys have been linked with this summer, Teamtalk further reports that the Whites also want Rob Holding.

Both players will be allowed to leave Arsenal in this transfer window if the Gunners get the right price. Chambers is reportedly available for £12m.

    Bellerin could be sold for good money and the wage bill reduced using existing players in his position. Could you not create a topic on this?
    He has given us great service and can continue at another club.
    Keep Chambers and AMN. Together they earn less than Bellerin

      Chambers is unlucky with injuries with two years left, he won’t start as CB with news signings, he did not excel at RB, and unforunately not tried enough in Arsenal as DM which I believe could ve been his best position.

      AMN, so far excelled few games in midfield, because he is a fighter but not good enough in RB imo. He has potential of improvement in midfield but Arsenal looks for established midfielders so he won’t start easily and probably won’t be happy. I would love to keep him but I would understand selling him if he want to be regular starter.

      Bellerin is still our best RB, and I won’t sell unless it is for a ridiculous fee, a replacement and he wants to go.

        Ba, Bellerin is not Arsenal’s best RB, as he can’t or won’t defend. He should be sold to pursue his career on the catwalks of Paris, Milan, Rome or Madrid.

      Why would Leeds sign a player who will not be fully fit until the end of this year?How does he pass the required medical?

        We think alike.. I always respect your opinion.

    “Chambers was one of the few players that Mikel Arteta trusted to start in his first few games as Arsenal’s manager.“

    Luiz and Sokratis started Arteta’s first game in charge. Chambers did start the second game, against Chelsea, and lasted 23 minutes before he was injured.

    Calum Chambers is also sought by Fulham, where while on loan he won their player of the season the year they were relegated. He primarily played DM, a position he has been given limited opportunities in at Arsenal.
    It is unfortunate that Arsenal can’t sell other underperforming players and keep AMN and Chambers, who can cover multiple positions and thus increase flexibility in the squad.

  5. Debo Ojomo says:

    Why would Leeds wants to sign an injured player unless it is very likely he heals immediately. More over, Arteta is willing to move only two of this 3 central backs; Mustafi, Sokratis and Holden. Chambers is definitely gonna be a gunner for a long time. He might not be in the starting eleven soon but he is gonna fight for his chance.
