Report: Leeds are keen on Arsenal’s Calum Chambers

Leeds United have entered talks with Arsenal to sign defender Calum Chambers, according to TEAMtalk.  

The England international does not appear to be part of the Gunners’ first-team plans going forward as he made just 14 league appearances last season. Since joining Arsenal in 2014 from Southampton, the 25-year-old has struggled to deliver good performances on a long-term basis at the Emirates.

He did fare better during two loan spells with Middlesbrough and Fulham in the top-flight. Even though the duo were relegated when Chambers was on their books, he was a top-performer on both occasions and certainly proved that he is worthy of playing in the Premier League.

Leeds are preparing to play in the top-flight for the first time in 16-years and need players with Premier League experience. They will have to find a replacement for Ben White, who has since re-joined parent club Brighton and Hove Albion. The Seagulls appear to not be keen on selling or loaning out the centre-back to a rival team.

Whilst Chambers does not appear to be a good fit at Arsenal, he is clearly capable of succeeding in the top-flight. A move to Elland Road could be what he needs to revive his career.
