The news that Arsenal had agreed a deal with Southampton for young full-back Calum Chambers caught many off guard.
Firstly due to the fact that little had been mentioned of Arsenal’s interest prior to this agreement and secondly due to the fact that the 19 year old full-back has only made 24 appearances for the club.
It’s no surprise to see Southampton making that paper though, the club are arguably the best in the business at being more than fairly compensated for the loss of their players.
The price tag attached to Chambers is a reported £12 million; meaning that it’s the third time Arsenal have forked out an eight figure fee for a Southampton teenager after Walcott and The Ox.
