Arsenal close to finalising revised deal to retain 23-year-old defender’s services

A report published by Sky Sports suggests that Arsenal and Calum Chambers are close to finalising a revised deal which would ensure that the promising 23-year-old centre-half remains at the Emirates for the foreseeable future under Unai Emery’s studied command.

A product of Southampton’s coveted academy system, Chambers joined the Gunners in 2014 to take his fledgling career to the next stage, however after a loan move to Middlesbrough and stagnant stints on the bench, many were dubious to whether the developing defender would make the grade at his current employers.

However Chambers is regarded as one of the English game’s brightest defensive prospects and Emery, who’s aiming to craft a glittering chapter of his own at the club, evidently values his dexterous services on the parameter of the 18-yard box, and with a fresh dose of confidence, there’s hope that his performances will soar next term in an Arsenal shirt.

Chambers’ future certainly appeared uncertain, and prior to this particular revelation, a temporary switch for the imminent 2018-19 season was touted, with Fulham amongst others being cited as a potential destination.

But, ultimately, it seems as though Chambers will be utilised on a much more of a frequent basis in the coming months, as Emery vies to construct a squad worthy of battling for the greatest accolades in the modern game, with youth and experience all in perfect symmetry and harmony on the field.
