Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has extended his current contract with Arsenal until the summer of 2021, the England international signed the two year extension to his current contract, according to the BBC.
This comes as good news for Arsenal fans after the time is usually takes to agree deals with current players, with many soon to be out of contract next summer and even more the summer after that.
The 22-year-old who joined Arsenal in 2014 from Southampton for £16m after a good 2013/14 season with The Saints made his mark in his first season at The Emirates.
However, due to the arrival of the likes of Gabriel and Mustafi he hasn’t broken into Arsene Wenger’s first team as yet. The signing of 21 year old Rob Holding last season pushed him even further down the pecking order and many expected him to leave Arsenal. however, Wenger decided that it would be a good idea for a loan move and he joined Middlesbrough on loan last season.
Defensively we have thinned things out and both Keiran Gibbs and Gabriel left to join West Brom and Valencia respectively while Mathieu Debuchy remains at Arsenal desperately looking for a way out.
Chambers has played 60 times for Arsenal and also been capped 4 times for England but has only made one appearance this season for the club, so on the back of this new contract, he’ll be looking to add to that and with Mustafi, Koscielny and perhaps even Kolasinac out, it looks like he may well get a chance soon if he can get back from his own injury.
