Arsenal still keen on Southampton star as transfer replacement

Calum ChambersSouthampton fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are sick of this summer’s transfer rumours already.

But it’s only going to get worse as according to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal will make a move for Saints teenager Calum Chambers after scouting him twice for England Under-19s.

The 19-year-old has emerged as a leading candidate for the Gunners after Bacary Sagna opted to join Manchester City on a Bosman.

He signed a new four-year contract last summer but any fee touted will be nowhere near as large as that of Luke Shaw who is estimated at £27 million.

Arsenal are in line for a tidy windfall if Chelsea’s move for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas goes through with a £1.5 million sell-on payment arriving from the Catalan club.

And Wenger sees Chambers as the perfect competition for fellow England youngster Carl Jenkinson.

Arsenal fans. Calum Chambers looks to have a big future but do you need someone with a little more experience to replace Bacary Sagna? Let us know your thoughts below.
