Arsenal star Calum Chambers should move to midfield if Lucas Torreira leaves

Arsenal star Lucas Torreira’s future remains in some doubt.

The Uruguay international has apparently told the club to listen to offers for him in January (Calciomercato).

It’s been a tough start to the 2019/20 season for the 23-year-old, who has seen his starting prospects take a big hit due to Unai Emery’s love of Matteo Guendouzi.

He was also behind Granit Xhaka in the pecking order, although it looks unlikely the Swiss will pose much of a threat to anyone now following his outburst against Crystal Palace.

It would not be a popular move if £75,000-a-week star Torreira (Spotrac) was sold, especially when it seems as though Emery has not been using him properly when he has played him.

Should he leave, it should prompt a change of position for Calum Chambers.


TBR’s view – Chambers worth a try

The 24-year-old caught the eye in the position for Fulham last term, and has so far shown good composure for the Gunners this season which could make him a success slightly further forward.

It’s something a section of the Arsenal support have wanted to see for a while now.

The majority won’t want Torreira gone, but if he does depart then it has to open the door for Emery to instigate a position change.

Chambers is wasted at right-back and Emery can most definitely make better use of him.
