Arsenal set to complete £16m signing of Southampton defender Calum Chambers [BBC]
Arsenal are set to c0mplete the signing of Southampton’s England U-19 defender Calum Chambers, in a £16m deal.
According to the BBC, Chambers completed his Arsenal medical on Friday, and the deal is all set to be completed this weekend.
Like Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before him, Chambers is the latest Southampton youth product to make a big-money move to the Emirates.
Though he’s a year or two older than The Ox and Walcott (17) were at the time of signing for Arsenal, it’s still surprising that Chambers’ fee should top that of the two attackers.
Southampton really are a fantastic example of the value of having a productive youth academy.
