Arsenal transfer rumours: Aouar, Partey, Chambers, Guendouzi 0

Arsenal have apparently been given a double blow in their effort to strengthen the midfield section. The two players they’ve recently been linked the most in that aspect are Houssem Aouar of Olympique Lyon and Thomas Partey of Atletico Madrid.

According to The Telegraph, Aouar and his representatives have been contacted by an unnamed Champions League club, and that puts a rather obvious obstacle in the Gunners’ path to bring him to the Emirates. One of those clubs could potentially be Bayern Munich, who lost the services of Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool a few days ago. It has also been claimed that Serie A champions Juventus have been monitoring the 22-year-old for a while with a view of taking him to Turin.

Arsenal are set to resume the Premier League season when they take on Newcastle United at the Emirates on Sunday, following the winter break which reportedly did the team a lot of good. Be that as it may, head coach Mikel Arteta spoke to the press ahead of the game and provided some updates on the situation with injured players.

Left-back Kieran Tierney, who hurt his shoulder by falling awkwardly in the West Ham clash back in December, has been ruled out and will likely need a few weeks more. It was confirmed that he was back in training in Dubai, but it was restricted to strictly non-contact work which obviously means his shoulder is still too sensitive for him to play.

Arsenal have been struggling much with fitness issues lately, especially in the defensive department. Calum Chambers it our for the rest of the season. Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac have both been out recently, forcing Mikel Arteta to utilize young winger Bukayo Saka on the left defensive flank – but Saka picked up a knock too in the goalless draw away at Burnley last week. Even the newly signed Cedric Soares came from Southampton injured. Forward Reiss Nelson has now joined them all in the treatment room.

Calum Chambers was forced off the pitch in the defeat to Chelsea at the Emirates on Sunday after a quarter of the game, and Arsenal had wait for a scan to determine the extent of the injury. The 24-year-old had only just started making some impact in the team, having made 18 appearances in all competitions this season, but now it seems he might sit the rest of it out.

The scan is now completed and the results are in, and the news is bad. As revealed by Gary Jacob of The Times, Chambers may have damaged his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which would potentially mean he won’t be playing again until the start of next season.

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers put in a strong showing during the win against Bournemouth, to the point where many Gunners fans are calling him the club’s saviour from a defensive standpoint. As reported by Arsenal.com, the man himself is excited and ready to learn from one of his senior teammates at the back – David Luiz.

“David has been brilliant, he has come in and no-one in the club has a bad word to say about him,” he said. “He is one of the nicest guys I have met, he talks to you, gives you advice and makes everyone feel like he is giving you his undivided attention.

Calum Chambers was a fresh face when he arrived at Arsenal five years ago, and at the time, he was considered to be a pretty promising talent for the club. However, after a few uneven years, many Gunners fans took it upon themselves to write him off. Now, though, as we look ahead to the new season, he’s ready to make an impact all over again.

During a recent feature piece for Arsenal.com, the defender opened up and let the world know that he was ready to do some damage this season – and beyond.

Chambers and Holding – a light at the end of the tunnel? 0

Arsenal are currently on a three-game winning streak in all competition – their best run of the season so far. They’ve beaten Eintracht Frankfurt away in the Europa League last week, then they came back from going down twice at home to beat Aston Villa in the Premier League, and now Nottingham Forrest have been gunned down in the Carabao Cup.

The defence still seemed abysmal in some moments, even in these three games; especially against Villa. Both Sokratis Papastathopoulos have had their trademark errors, but fortunately, others have put their names forward for Unai Emery’s consideration the next time the Spaniard starts choosing his starting XI. Those names are Calum Chambers and Rob Holding.

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are willing to use Calum Chambers, Reiss Nelson and Carl Jenkinson as makeweights in a deal to sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha. Reports suggest that the Ivory Coast international is rated in the £80million bracket.

The purse strings are set to be tight again at Arsenal this summer, so using players as a makeweight may prove to be the answer for the Gunners.

Zaha would be a good signing for Arsenal

The Gunners are reportedly looking to bring in a wide man this summer. Zaha is developing into a very dangerous attacking player and has been the focal point of the Eagles attack for much of the season.

There are a lot of good things happening at Arsenal right now, but there are also a handful of questions that still need to be addressed. One such question we have is this: what in the world has happened to Calum Chambers? When he was first brought into the club many fans saw it as a sign that the club was doing everything they could to fix their defensive problems. While that likely was the case it felt like he was thrust into the spotlight far too soon, and thus, his form wound up suffering as a result.
