Why Crystal Palace should do everything to seal a deal for this Arsenal man

Crystal Palace supporters in the Transfer Tavern are enthused at the prospect of signing Calum Chambers.

According to reports, Frank De Boer has submitted a bid to sign Arsenal’s young English defender, Calum Chambers.

The 22-year-old spent the duration of last season on loan at Middlesbrough, where he impressed in a distinctly average team.

Southampton’s former defender is regarded for his critical versatility, and at his age, there remains plenty of time for further development.

The English defender can operate as a centre-back or at right-back, albeit he has featured at centre-back for the majority of his career.

Stylistically, he is a typical Wenger player, one that exhibits great composure and comfort when in possession.

He isn’t afraid of passing, and he’s also adept at crossing the ball.

One aspect of his game in which he’s dominant is when competing for the ball in the air, Chambers is a proficient header of the ball.

Nonetheless, the promising Englishman isn’t devoid of his flaws.

The centre-half commits far too many fouls and isn’t especially good at retaining possession of the ball.

In times of pressure, he tends to clear the ball, which is a useful tool, yet perhaps it isn’t desired on all occasions.

Our landlord believes this would be a stellar addition for the Eagles.

Frank de Boer’s defence is ageing, Scott Dann is 30 years old, and Damien Delaney is 35.

The signing of another young defender, following the arrival of Jairo Riedewald, will notably augment the quality of their squad.
