Calum Chambers may not be handed long term centre-back role

Arsene Wenger's plans to sign a centre-back this summer could see things change for youngster Calum Chambers. 

The Daily Mail have reported that Chambers may well have to settle for a long term role in the right-back position or as a holding-midfielder, with Gunners chief Wenger seemingly determined to add to his defensive options in the next transfer window. 

Defensive improvement 

It appears, then, that despite the north London outfit adding ex-La Liga man Gabriel to their ranks in January, the hierarchy want to continue to improve the club's back-line.

And that could have consequences for Chambers, who has been moved around on a number of occasions throughout his debut campaign at the club. 

Many had expected the talented youngster to eventually move into the centre of defence, but that may now change under the Wenger regime. 

With the same report claiming that the likes of Neven Subotic and Aleksandar Dragovic are on the club's shortlist, it remains to be seen as to whether the Gunners step up their interest in either of the players anytime soon. 

Feel good factor

Chambers and Co. will no doubt be in great spirits after the club secured their place in the FA Cup semi-final on Monday evening. The ex-Saints man played his part in the victory as he came on as a second half substitute, and he will certainly be hoping his club can go all the way this term to retain their trophy. 

Next up, though, for the Gunners is a clash with West Ham United as they look to maintain their strong run in England's elite division. 

Chambers has a great future

Wherever he plays, he's certainly got more than enough about him to prove his credentials in the Premier League over the coming years. 

Without a doubt, Chambers has gone from strength-to-strength under the guidance of Wenger, so will only improve as he goes in search of success at the Emirates. Perhaps he will have to fight it out to prove himself at the heart of the club's defence, but that will only make him stronger as he also looks to establish himself as a regular for the England national team. 

He certainly has the ability to do just that, and fans of the Gunners should be excited by his potential.
