West Ham boss David Moyes should consider making a move for Arsenal defender Calum Chambers this summer, with Mikel Arteta keen to sell the 25-year-old, according to the Sun.

The Hammers boss desperately needs to bolster his defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

At right-back, Ben Johnson requires more stringent competition, with Ryan Fredericks having failed to impress since joining the east London outfit in the summer of 2018.

And then at centre-back, Winston Reid and Fabian Balbuena face uncertain futures at West Ham (ExWHUemployee).

So with that in mind, Arsenal defender Calum Chambers could be the ideal addition. The 25-year-old is comfortable playing at right-back or centre-back.

West Ham boss David Moyes has limited funds to play with this summer. So the Gunners ace’s availability for just £12 million (the Sun) will surely appeal to the Hammers.

Mikel Arteta is allegedly prepared to sanction the former Southampton man’s Emirates exit.

 

And a move from north to east London would surely appeal to Chambers, if he is guaranteed regular action of course.

Stats

The 25-year-old Arsenal ace made 14 Premier League appearances for the Gunners last season.

In those outings, he averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 2.9 clearances per game. He also won an average of 2.6 aerial duals per game (Who Scored).

Chambers is at a great age to go on and develop into a top class defender. He is already a very solid operator.

Considering his versatility, West Ham would essentially be getting two players for the price of just £12 million.

And Moyes should really consider bringing Chambers to the London Stadium this summer.
