This afternoon Arsenal announced yet another fantastic signing to add to the arrivals of Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy and David Ospina.
It is quite a risk signing as the full back has only featured in 23 first team appearances for the Saints, but Arsene Wenger is one of the greatest managers ever to spot young, hungry talent from a mile off – so the £12million fee may seem a lot for a player of his experience, but I have a feeling it will be more than worth it.
Wenger is certainly happy with his fourth recruit of the summer:
We are very pleased that Calum has agreed to join us,
The way he adapted to the Premier League last season with Southampton at a young age shows that he has tremendous quality. He has a lot of the attributes that we look for in a young player and I am sure that he will do well with us.
But what does the player himself think of the move? Chambers is certainly excited to link up with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger:
I am so happy to be signing for Arsenal, they are a team I have much admired for their playing style, and a team who have been one of the top sides in Europe for many years. Wenger is a fantastic manager and everyone can see that. To get the opportunity to work with him will be amazing.
With more signings to come Arsenal fans are enjoying a busy summer of positive transfer activity – something they may not be too familiar with!
