Calum Chambers

It’s hard to say how Arsenal should approach the Calum Chambers issue. He was experiencing a pretty decent season before his ACL tear. He provides good cover in midfield and at full-back when needed and he looked to be staking a claim for the right-centre-back position pre-injury.

Given his injury situation, it’s pretty much impossible to sell him this year. As we’ve seen with Holding and Bellerìn, the recovery process from an ACL injury isn’t particularly quick so it’ll be interesting to see how patient the club are with him. Would not be surprised to see him sold during the Summer of 2021.

Verdict: Keep, for now

More of the old coming up next with Sokratis.
