Arsenal’s Mathieu Flamini hails ‘great’ Calum Chambers

Mathieu Flamini believes that Arsenal teammate Calum Chambers has a bright future.

Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has been singing the praises of his teammate Calum Chambers.

The England international defender joined the Gunners from Southampton in the summer transfer window for a reported fee of £16 million.

Chambers has been impressive for the North London outfit so far this season, having been deployed in centre-back and at right-back by manager Arsene Wenger.

Flamini, who rejoined Arsenal last summer, is impressed with the 19-year-old’s displays and believes that he has a bright future.


Chambers has indeed proved to be a good addition to the Arsenal team and has shown his versatility.

Despite not scoring in seven Premier League appearances, the teenager has created chances, won 55% of his duels and has a pass accuracy of 88%.

Chambers was initially signed as cover in central defence, but the injury to right-back Mathieu Debuchy has led him to being deployed at right-back.

There are even suggestions that Chambers could be used in defensive midfield. If he is deployed in that position, then he is likely to do well.
