Arsenal, Calum Chambers, Clubs, Fulham, Story, Transfers

Despite Unai Emery’s fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC’s Craig Burley isn’t so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot.

Premier League newcomer Fulham have signed Arsenal defender Calum Chambers on loan for the season.

The two clubs confirmed the deal on Tuesday, just weeks after Chambers signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal.

“I’m really excited. I watched a lot of Fulham last season, I really like the way they play football, there’s a good manager, it’s a great club, so I’m really excited for the season ahead,” Chambers told the Fulham website.

“Everyone can see that Fulham’s a club that likes to play football, play football from the back, through the lines. That’s the style of football I like as well, so I think it fits me and suits the way I play.”

Chambers joined the Gunners in 2014 in a deal worth up to £16 million but has never locked down a regular starting role at the Emirates. He has made 82 appearances in all competitions, and spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Middlesbrough.

“Calum is a talented defender who has a bright future,” Arsenal head coach Unai Emery said. “We all believe this loan at Fulham will be an important part of his development and wish him a successful season.”

Fulham, based in West London, have signed eight players in the close season, including Andre Schuerrle, Alfie Mawson and Jean Michael Seri, with striker Aleksandar Mitrovic making a loan move from Newcastle permanent.
