Arsenal player Calum Chambers has signed a new two years contract extension at the club on Wednesday. It means that the defender commits at the club till 2021.
Calum Chambers joined Arsenal in the summer of 2014 from Southampton and since then hasn’t made a huge impact at the club. His start in life in North London was decent and he also became Arsenal’s player of the month in his first month at the club, but since then he has been down the pecking order by the likes of Koscielny, Gabriel and now Mustafi. He has made occasional league appearances but his main role has been in the cup matches.
Chambers also spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough where he displayed some decent defensive traits but couldn’t save them relegation. So far the former Saints player has made 60 appearances for the Gunners and despite being linked to several clubs this summer, Wenger opted to stick with him and give him a chance to establish himself at the club.
Chambers took social media and it was vivid that the 22 year old was quite ecstatic about extending his contract at the Emirates.
“I know I’m still a young player and I want to have my best years playing for this football club,” said Chambers. “I want to win as many trophies with Arsenal as possible.”
He also added that he wants to repay the fans the faith they have shown in him and termed his commitment as ‘pride’ to extend his stay at Arsenal.
Chambers currently not in the first team plans of Arsene Wenger but he surely would be looking to push for the spot as the Gunners now are more familiar with three at the back. He also earned his England cap during his Arsenal days in 2014 and would be hoping to be back in that radar as well.
