There’s news in the Mirror today that if Newcastle are promoted we have Arsenal’s Calum Chambers as a transfer target this summer.
Calum was brought up though the famous Southampton Youth Academy and he has played 59 times with 3 goals for Arsenal before he was sent out on loan to Middlesbrough this season where he’s played 20 times.
Calum played only 25 times for the Saints before he was snapped up by Arsenal in the summer of 2014.
The report is that West Ham and Everton are also interested in the 22 year-old.

One of the good things about Calum is he can play in multiple positions, but Rafa will want him for one position at Newcastle – whatever that may be.
That’s similar to when he signed Isaac Hayden who could play in multiple positions, but the manager wanted him for defensive midfield and has played Isaac there.
Calum can play full-back, center-half and as a holding midfielder and he’s a talented young player.
Rafa will be able to get the best out of him, which is one reason the Hampshire born player could be tempted to move to Newcastle and join the Rafa Revolution.
Chambers made his full debut for Southampton back in August 2012 in a 4–1 win over Stevenage in the second round of the League Cup when he was just 17.
Calum made his full England debut against Norway in September, 2014 coming on as a um late in the 1–0 win at Wembley and has 3 caps.
The Rafa Revolution could also soon be in full swing after a good 2-1 win yesterday at home to Wigan – now we must beat Burton Albion at home and maybe another four wins will see us promoted?
Calum would be a very good buy for Newcastle at something over £10M.
