PL rivals set to capitalise on Arsenal ace’s uncertain future with surprise loan bid

According to reports from Mirror Football, Southampton are lining up a shock loan bid for Arsenal defender Calum Chambers.

The England international rose through the ranks at the Saints academy and went on to make 25 appearances at senior level – including 22 Premier League outings – before signing for the Gunners in summer 2014.

However, the 21-year-old hasn’t progressed as expected since moving to the Emirates. Although he made 22 appearances across all competitions last season, Chambers failed to register a single start in the Premier League.

According to Mirror Football, Arsene Wenger has admitted he can’t guarantee the defender game-time for next season, creating further doubts over his future with the north London club.

But former employers Southampton are ready to offer Chambers a vital lifeline in the form of a two-term loan bid that would see him return to St. Mary’s until the end of the 2017/18 season.

Ronald Koeman is eager to boost his defensive depth and capable of playing at right-back or centre-half, the 6 foot hotshot is seen as an ideal addition.
