There’s a good report in the Telegraph today that Newcastle United are interested in signing Arsenal’s Calum Chambers and James McCarthy from Everton this summer.
We know that James McCarthy has been a strong target since January and there were also rumors in January Rafa wanted Cal Chambers who is currently on loan from Arsenal at Middlesbrough for the season, so he gets some playing time.
Calum Chambers in Arsenal colors
Calum is a very good young player who came through Southampton’s Youth Academy before signing on at Arsenal for around £13M three years ago,
He turned 22 years old in January and he’s made 23 total appearances for Middlesbrough on loan this season.
Chambers is a versatile player who can play at right back or center-back and if Rafa is interested he obviously thinks he can improve the 3 times capped England International.
Certainly Calum is a classy young player and should have a great future ahead of him in the game.
He joined Southampton at the age of seven back in 2002 and came though their famous Youth Academy and eventually played 25 times for the Saints first team before moving to Arsenal in the summer of 2014.
In the two seasons he was at Arsenal vying for a first team place he played 58 times for them before moving on loan to Middlesbrough last summer for the season.
He made his debut for England against Norway back in September, 2104 when England won 1–0 at Wembley Stadium.
We’ve always thought of Calum as an excellent young technical player with great potential and we think that Rafa can bring out that potential at Newcastle, if we can sign him.
