Arsenal rejected a late offer for Calum Chambers, according to reports.
Amid all the deadline day madness, Leicester City attempted to sign Calum Chambers.
According to Sky Sports, the Foxes had a bid of £20m for the 22-year-old rejected by Arsenal, who were holding out for £27m.
Chambers was the subject of interest from Crystal Palace earlier in the summer, but were put off by Arsenal’s high asking price.
The defender returned to Arsenal after spending last season on loan at Middlesbrough. Despite some decent performances, it didn’t seem like he was in Arsene Wenger’s plans at all.
He played just 45 minutes in pre-season, and was left out of the matchday squad for the first three games of the season despite Arsenal needing centre backs.
It’s possible that clubs will try to sign him again in January, especially if the situation doesn’t improve.
The sale of Gabriel to Valencia might free up room for Chambers in the squad, so he could still get some game time this season. He could also feature in our Europa League group games.
Chambers is still a promising player, and it’d be a shame if he couldn’t get more games to prove that.
