Arsenal FC Opinion – Two Premier League clubs who should target Calum Chambers in the summer
According to a report in Mirror, Calum Chambers doesn’t have a future at Arsenal, despite doing well in his loan spell at Fulham. He will return from Craven Cottage to the Emirates stadium, but could soon be good bye to the latter.
The Gunners are open to bids for the 24-year-old, and they will sell the player if the right evaluation is met. (Mirror) The England has a contract until 2022 and was bought for a fee around £16m from Southampton.
Hence, in an ideal scenario, the north Londoners should be looking to sell for how much they spent on him.
Here are the two Premier League clubs who should keep a close eye on Chambers and look to buy him in the summer window:
As per the evidence of this season, Chambers has shown that he can play more than a part in defensive midfield role. The former Southampton man is an established centre-back as well, meaning he could be a versatile addition to the Everton team that has struggled in defensive department.
With Idrissa Gueye’s future in doubt, as PSG expected to nag around in the summer, the Toffees should buy Calum Chambers and play him in the defensive midfield role. If required, the Englishman can play at centre-back.
PSG tried to bring in Watford’s star midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure in the January window, but the Hornets anyhow managed to keep the Frenchman. However, the suggestion is that the French champions would come back with a bid in the summer, especially knowing that Adrien Rabiot will leave.
Hence, Javi Gracia’s men have to buy a new central/defensive midfielder in ahead of the start of the new season. Calum Chambers could be an ideal choice for them. The 24-year-old can play as a defensive anchor, protecting the back-line.
