Arsenal stars welcome Calum Chambers to club on Twitter

Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott were just two Gunners to of many Gunners to welcome Southampton academy graduate to the club.

Arsenal announced their fourth signing of the summer as teenage right-back talent Calum Chambers has joined David Ospina, Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium.

As has been tradition with the Gunners, a first-team core have welcomed the 19-year-old novice to the club and have used social media as the platform to do so.

Theo Walcott - who will need to strike a productive relationship with the player down the right-hand flank - wrote on his Instagram account: "Great to meet Calum Chambers - I'm looking forward to working with him."

The English attacker was not the only Gunner in on the act, though, as left back Kieran Gibbs, versatile midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and box-to-box midfielder Aaron Ramsey all joined in on Twitter.

Perhaps most humorously, Oxlade-Chamberlain insisted he may need to take his near namesake Chambers "to court" over nickname copyright violation (most probably over N5 ownership of the moniker - 'Chambo').

Chambers, meanwhile, said on the club's official website that he was looking forward to following in the footsteps of other players to progress from the Saints to Arsenal.

He said: "The manager has a fantastic history of bringing young players through and nurturing them - and especially from Southampton, as you have seen Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott!

"I would just like to have the opportunity to follow in their path and be as successful as them."
