19-Year-Old Defender Arsenal Premier
Chambers has joined Arsenal from Southampton on a long-term contract, the Gunners' official website reports.
Chambers moves to Arsenal following a successful debut campaign that saw him make 22 appearances (18 starts) for Southampton last season. While mostly playing right-back, Chambers helped the Saints finish with the Premier League's sixth best defensive record. Additionally, the current England Under-19 team captain can be deployed in central defense and midfield, offering versatility in various areas of the pitch. Considering Arsenal also signed the more experienced Mathieu Debuchy this summer, Chambers will likely be limited to reserve appearances, with fellow right-back Carl Jenkinson seemingly poised to be loaned out for the coming season.
