Chambers extends Arsenal stay

Share This

Perhaps Calum Chambers does have a future at Arsenal.

Despite languishing on the fringes of Arsene Wenger’s first team, the English defender has put pen to paper on a two-year extension with the north London side through 2021.

The Gunners announced the news Wednesday and Chambers tweeted to share his elation with the move.

Now all Chambers needs is a chance to play – and the 22-year-old may get exactly that in light of the injury Shkodran Mustafi suffered during a meaningless international tilt for Germany.

The World Cup winner’s likely protracted stay on the treatment table, paired with some shaky performance from Rob Holding, may allow Chambers to make his first Premier League appearance of the season sooner than later. The Southampton academy product’s ability to play both in central defence and as a full-back will only help those odds.
