Exclusive: Marcus Bent says Calum Chambers would be “amazing” signing for Palace

Marcus Bent reckons that Calum Chambers would be an amazing signing for his former side Crystal Palace.

The Patrick Vieira era is well underway, with the Frenchman already adding four players to his squad in Michael Olise, Marc Guehi, Joachim Andersen and most recently, Conor Gallagher on loan from Chelsea.

Despite several high-profile departures, Palace have managed to keep talisman Wilfried Zaha up to now, and are building an impressive squad ahead of the new campaign.

Should Crystal Palace sign Batshuayi permanently?

According to 90 Min, Vieira is hoping to make another defensive addition in the shape of Chambers, with Arsenal open to offloading the 26-year-old.

Chambers, who’s racked up 149 Premier League appearances, has been with the Gunners for seven years but hasn’t quite managed to establish himself as a regular despite his ability to play in more than one position (as per Transfermarkt).

Roy Hodgson's excellent Crystal Palace tenure appears to be drawing to a close but we bet you can't remember all of it! Test yourself below. Firstly, when was Hodgson appointed as Palace manager?

But he ended the campaign as Arsenal’s first-choice right-back and has been used heavily there already in pre-season which would suggest that he could still be in Mikel Arteta’s plans.

With Palace desperately needing another right-back following the departure of Nathaniel Clyne, Bent recognises the Arsenal defender’s quality.

He exclusively told FFC:

“Calum Chambers is a good player, whether Crystal Palace can get him, they have to look at that, but he would be an amazing signing.”
