Calum Chambers settled at Arsenal

Published Add your comment

Originating from Southampton's incredible academy system and breaking through into the first team at St Marys, Calum Chambers attracted the interest of Arsenal, who snapped him up for £16 million in the summer. The 19-year-old says he has already settled in at the Emirates.


After experiencing a taste of international football in his debut against Norway on August 28, Chambers also kept a clean sheet to his name, earning his starting position in England's following international match; their opening European qualifier against Switzerland, which they once again avoided conceding in.

In fact, Chambers presence must be more gracious than it may seem as the national side haven't allowed the ball roll over their own line since his debut.

As well as his international career getting kick-started, unfortunately his Champions League debut suffered a completely different fate. A shambolic 2-0 away defeat to Bundesliga strugglers Borussia Dortmund wasn't one of the 19-year-old's brightest moments in an Arsenal shirt but the centre-back has come out to say how happy is with settling in so quickly with his fellow Gunners.

Too good to refuse

He is quoted in the Daily Star as saying: "When you get the opportunity to come to a club like this you can't turn it down. Everyone has welcomed me so well that it has made it easier for me to settle and be as confident as I am here."

Since his summer switch, the 19-year-old has made eight appearances for the Gunners but due to his defensive duties, he has failed to score. 

It seems as though Chambers will have to learn to keep on his feet as soon as possible however as the England international has already served a suspension for five yellow cards.

Chambers is relishing the visit of struggling new boys Burnley on Saturday as he looks for yet another clean sheet for the Gunners.

He added:"I try my utmost hardest to please the fans here and I know it's hard so that's why I'm putting extra work in on the training ground."
