We cant sell dude. We should be happy with 10m for him looking at our latest selling record.
Why not keep.him on a one year rolling contract. If he proves good enough to cover first team players then roll it over. If he’s not interested then sell but we need cover and he wants to play for Arsenal that imo puts him near the front.
He’s under contract until 2022
Oh right I thought like most of the team he was in a final year. Must try and remember Wenger didn’t let every players contract run out
Yes I think you’re right. Chambers could be a good squad player although he’s still to prove himself before he’s in our first 11. Let’s hope we get rid of Mustafi who’s been the worst ever regular centre back I’ve ever seen in nearly 40 years of supporting the Arsenal. Chambers is certainly better than Mustafi.
The saddest thing about Mustafi is that he’s a decent player technically, it’s just that his constant mistakes render him useless and it doesn’t matter in the end. If he had half of a brain and could be more circumspect he’d be a solid CB, but he has no brain. Literally none.
I will not be able to watch another season with him in the side but I know I’ll have to; who the fuck would take him above clubs at League One level?
Is Mustafi Turkish ? If so there is an avenue for him
The whole point of signing the young defender years ago was so that we could reap the rewards when he gets to 23/24 years of age.
He’s come off the back of his best season yet, albeit in midfield. Whether he can be a an asset in defence is yet to be proven, but I think he could be a valuable squad player next season.
Don’t see a reason to get rid unless a decent offer comes in.
If I speak I am in big trouble.
Where’s this man gone?
In fact, all loanees(non-interventionals) haven’t joined up.
Hint that he’s not part of our plans?
Instead of blowing 10-30m on a temporary solution we might as well stick with Chambers who, for those who forgot, looked like our best defender last pre-season and then out of the blue he signed for Fulham.
Pre season means exactly fuck all.
Nonsense. Most of our top pre-season performers over the years went into the season blazing. Rambo and Guendo some of the best examples.
Having a good pre-season can decide your performance levels for the upcoming season.
I’ll give you that. For the most part it means fuck all.
I like Chambers, if Palace have any sense they’ll take him over wastermen Elneny or Jenks. It think Chambers will make something of himself in this league, just probably not at Arsenal.
If Bournemouth can get £20m for a cast off who had a good loan spell at Villa then we should be commanding at least £35m for Chambers.
We won’t get anything over 20m for Chambers. We’re not of that club profile, making some steals out of player sales. We won’t become that now either, unfortunately.
Seriously, keep our defenders as is and off Mustafi, try and minimize the loss we’ve made on him(although he and Xhaka have cost us CL football for 3 seasons now).
Papa, Kosc, Holding and Chambers isn’t that bad. Add Monreal in there if shitstorm hits.
Personally, I would have taken punt at a 1 year deal with Cahill but that’s it.
