Report: Arsenal man to join Premier League side on loan

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is set to join Middlesbrough on a season-long loan deal, according to Sky Sports.

The report suggests Middlesbrough are favourites to sign the versatile defender this week even though the player has also received an offer from another Premier League side.

However, Sky Sports claim personal terms are yet to be agreed between the Teesside club and the player.

Chambers, who scored in Arsenal’s Premier League defeat to Liverpool 2 weeks ago, looks set to move to Middlesbrough in search of regular first-team football.

The former Southampton player joined his current club two years ago for a reported fee of £16m and has since played 59 times for Wenger’s team.

Even though Chambers would spend the remainder of the current season with Aitor Karanka’s side, he’s still only 21 years old, so the potential move away from the Emirates Stadium wouldn’t mean his Arsenal career is over.

He needs regular first-team football and he’s unlikely to get it at Arsenal this season, especially considering the acquisition of Shkodran Mustafi.

It’d be a good move for Chambers. Karanka’s side plays decent football, so the transition between Arsenal and Middlesbrough wouldn’t be that difficult.
