Arsenal continued their impressive summer spending on Monday, announcing the transfer of Calum Chambers from Southampton.
The 19-year-old has joined the Gunners on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee, with reports suggestion it is in the region of £16million.
While some may question the wisdom in spending so much on someone who plays predominantly in the same position as another recent recruit - Mathieu Debuchy - those who have watched Chambers develop will know Arsene Wenger has signed an absolute gem.
Chambers may be young, but he already has 25 senior appearances for Southampton under his belt and can operate in a number of positions including centre-back and defensive midfield.
Following the move, we took to Twitter to see what the Arsenal fans made of the club's latest bit of business, and you can read a selection of what we found below:
Arsenal complete the £16m signing of Southampton defender Calum Chambers. Another fantastic addition for the Gunners— Saqib Ali (@helder786) July 28, 2014
Calum Chambers is a cracking signing! Our squad depth is looking rather impressive! Something we've lacked for a while.. #Arsenal— Barzin Keywan (@BarzinKeywan) July 28, 2014
Really baffled by the signing of Calum Chambers, after such smart signings by Arsene Wenger hes gone and spent 12m on someone we dont need!— Ben Blackmore (@BBlackmore) July 28, 2014
Calum Chambers to Arsenal for €20 million is simply ridiculous if you consider that even Arsene Wenger said that it is a gamble.— Marco Conradie (@MarcoConradie10) July 28, 2014
Is Calum Chambers that good? I watched the #Arsenal U21 team on Saturday & the 17-year-old right-back Tafari Moore looked a real prospect.— Rob Brennan (@RobBrennan82) July 28, 2014
