Chambers joined Arsenal in 2014

The 23 year old joined the Gunners in 2014 after breaking into the scenes at Southampton, but since then he has been mostly on the fringes at North London. Despite having a good early couple of months to his Arsenal career, Chambers fell down the pecking order in the presence of Koscielny, Gabriel and Mustafi and has been seldom used by Arsene Wenger.

He has so far made 83 appearance for the Gunners, and only 48 of them have come in the Premier League in the last four years. He was poised to join the list among the Arsenal departures, but new coach Unai Emery has seen his potential and considers the 23 year old has a bright future at the club. And BBC reporter David Ornstein reports that the England International is set to extend his stay at the Emirates that will keep him at the club will 2022.

Chambers is set to extend his stay at Arsenal

The former Southampton man signing a new deal means Rob Holding may be on his way out on a loan deal. Calum joined Middlesbrough on loan as well where he had a good season, but failed to keep his place in the team last season, but ended his season with some good performances at the latter end.

Arsenal are already in the market to bolster their squad as defender Sokratis is on the verge of joining the Gunners. Despite that, injury of Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi’s uncanny and inconsistent form means Chambers will have a part to play in the upcoming season.
