Leeds United should rival Fulham for £12m-rated Calum Chambers – TBR View

The Arsenal fringe player could be available for transfer this summer.

Arsenal look set to offload defender Calum Chambers this summer and Leeds United should be all over a deal for the Gunners fringe player.

According to The Sun, Fulham are lining-up a £12 million move for Chambers who doesn’t appear to be in Mikel Arteta’s plans.

Scott Parker will want to shape his squad accordingly as his team look to be competitive in the Premier League next season.

The 25-year-old suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury during his only appearance under Arteta. He is, however, back in training and could be ready to play by the end of next month.

Leeds will also have plans to strengthen their squad ahead of next season and in defence, they do look short.

Gaetano Berardi is out for nine months with a knee injury, whilst Ben White has returned to Brighton and right now there’s no saying he’ll return to the club.

 

That leaves Liam Cooper as the only senior central defender and Chambers looks like a player Leeds should be interested in.

One aspect that makes him ideal is his versatility. At Arsenal, he has featured as a centre-back, at right-back and as a holding midfielder.

Leeds have been linked with lots of overseas players and although some of those may be added, some proven Premier League players would be ideal too.

Experience

The Arsenal man earns £50,000-a-week at the Emirates Stadium but wages might not come into consideration as far as Chambers is concerned.

After his injury problems, he’ll welcome some regular football and given a shortage of quality defenders at Leeds, he’d definitely be capable of playing more often than not.

At this stage, there’s nothing to suggest Leeds are interested in the slightest. Taking everything into consideration though, they could do a lot worse than secure Chambers this summer.
