Calum Chambers was confirmed as an Arsenal player on Monday in a switch from Southampton that could reach up to £16million and the 19-year-old defender will hope to see plenty of action with the Gunners this season.
North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur have also added a promising young British defender in Ben Davies after the 21-year-old made the switch from Swansea earlier this month.
Both deals will have pleased supporters as both Davies and Chambers have bundles of potential and already have valuable Premier League experience.
Chambers will need to have his position in the Arsenal side clarified if he is to make an impact as it unlikely that he will dislodge another new signing in Mathieu Debuchy in his natural position at right-back.
Arsene Wenger has already revealed that he believes Chambers will be able to operate at centre-back as well in a defensive midfield role and the versatility of the youngster is one of the key reasons that the Arsenal boss made the move to sign him.
"He is a player I wanted because I rated his quality and intelligence, he is only 19 and can play in different positions as well," Wenger said.
It is still difficult to see Chambers making the starting lineup on a weekly basis in the Premier League with so much quality in the Arsenal side already, and first-choice centre-backs Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny will continue to play alongside each other in their formidable partnership whenever fit.
Chambers will surely see plenty of action in the domestic cup competitions as Wenger will hope to mould the player into a star over the course of the season.
For that reason, Davies is likely to make more of an impression this year as he will surely become Tottenham's first-choice at left-back after making the switch from Swansea.
Danny Rose struggled at times in the position last season and new boss Mauricio Pochettino addressed the problem area in the team by bringing in the Welshman.
Davies has made 71 Premier League appearances in the past two seasons for the Swans and should adapt to Pochettino's new system as he will be encouraged to attack down the left whenever possible.
The young full-back should be a regular at Spurs this season and for that reason will likely make more of an impression than Chambers, although both could be stars in the near future.
