Report: Arsenal star set for England call-up after impressive start to season

Calum Chambers is set to be named in the England squad to face Norway and Switzerland.

Arsenal's Calum Chambers will reportedly be named in Roy Hodgson's next England squad after hitting the ground running at the Emirates Stadium this season.

Chambers has been in impressive form since signing for the Gunners for a fee that could rise to £16 million. He started in the centre of defence in the Community Shield victory over Manchester City, and retained his place for the opening two games of the Premier League campaign.

Now the 19-year-old will receive his first international call-up in Hodgson's squad to face Norway in a friendly and then Switzerland in England's first Euro 2016 qualifier.

Tottenham's Danny Rose and Aston Villa's Fabian Delph are also likely to receive call-ups, according to the Telegraph's Oliver Kay.

Able to play at centre back, right back or as a holding midfield player, Chambers offers great versatility to the Three Lions. His inclusion means the likes of Phil Jagielka and Glen Johnson could be set to miss out after less-than-stellar performances in the 2014 World Cup.

Hodgson will also name his new captain to replace Liverpool's Steven Gerrard, who stepped down after England were crashed out in Brazil.

Wayne Rooney is the favourite to be handed the armband, while Gary Cahill and Joe Hart are thought to be in with a chance.
