“I’m delighted Calum has extended his stay with us. He played an important role last season and will be part of my plans this season.”He made 24 appearances last season, including eight in the Europa League and has been overall solid throughout the season.
Calum Chambers has been always looked more comfortable in a back three rather than a back four but he did well last season in a back four and will suit Emery’s plan as he is known to play with a back four defence. Unai Emery will surely look to fix the long pending defensive issues first and we will have some idea about his plans in the pre-season games.
Delighted to have signed a new deal at @arsenal! I want to give my very best to this great club. Thanks to the new manger for showing faith in me and I’m looking forward to the big season ahead! I promise to repay the fans back for the support they’ve given me! #COYG 🔴🔴🔴 pic.twitter.com/WxRfjNNUGM— Calum Chambers (@CalumChambers95) July 3, 2018
Also, Arsenal is heavily linked being to Caglar Soyuncu and if they get him, they have to offload one of the defenders and Mustafi will be the one who is likely to leave. Emery will try different combinations at the back in the pre-season and with Koscielny out for a long time, his first choice will likely be Sokratis and Mustafi at the kick off of the Premier League campaign and if Mustafi is to be sold, Calum Chambers will likely be the first choice at the back. Also he can provide a back up to Hector Bellerin as he is naturally a right-back which makes him a must on the bench if not in the starting line-up. Arsenal needed to address their defensive issues after some horrific performances, especially in the away games and they look to be in good direction with an all new defense at the back. It will be more accurate to give the same players the same amount of chances to prove their worth rather than giving new players a chance when the previous ones were inadequate and only being 23 years old for now, Calum Chambers can make the most of this opportunity and flourish under Unai Emery.

Juan Carlos Carcedo, who is Unai's assistant will heavily involve himself in helping us defend better. Will definitely help the talented young CB's at this club – Chambers, Holding and Mavropanos improve their game. pic.twitter.com/JOdirLA8ME— LTArsenal™ (@ltarsenal) July 4, 2018
