Everton is rumoured to be interested in signing Arsenal defender Calum Chambers in January.
Chambers’ contract is not anticipated to be extended beyond the conclusion of the current season. Since he has not played in the Premier League since August.
While the 26-year-old Englishman could wait until the summer to become a free agent. The Gunners are thought to be eager to obtain a price for him in January.
Everton clearly attempted to recruit Ainsley Maitland-Niles during the summer transfer window. And they may try again during the winter season.
The player, though, is said to be hesitant to make any long-term choices. Until he sees how the rest of the season with Arsenal plays out.
Benitez is expected to turn to Calum Chambers as a result. Arsenal might be willing to trade the right-back for around £5 million in the January transfer window, according to reports.
Arsenal has the option to extend Chambers’ contract until 2023, according to the report.
Maitland-Niles was enraged by his management and even made his distress public. Since then, the two have reunited, with the 24-year-old midfielder reviving his Arsenal career.
He has made ten appearances in all competitions this season. He intends to wait until the conclusion of the season to make any choices regarding his future. Arsenal is not compelled to sell him because his contract does not expire until 2023.
The attitude of Maitland-Niles this season has also been complimented by Arteta, making a January exit improbable.
Everton do need a right back like Calum Chambers
Chambers has been a bit player at the Emirates Stadium for a while now. Appearing in only 12 Premier League games in the last two seasons. He has not even made the replacements bench in recent weeks. Falling behind Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares in the pecking order.
Benitez, on the other hand, would love to sign Maitland-Niles on a loan with the option to purchase after the season. The England international came close to joining Everton in the summer. Only for Arteta to scupper the move at the last minute, much to the chagrin of the Merseysiders.
Currently, Everton lacks a right-back who can come in place when Seamus Coleman will need to be swapped. With the current ambitions of the club, Everton will need another right back. A player like Calum Chambers does make a good signing for Everton.
Firstly due to the player being able to play in multiple positions. In the midfield as well as in defence. During the player’s time at Fulham, the player was named the player of the season. While playing in the midfield or as a part of the 3 centre backs. Due to this range in the player’s talent, he was called back by Arsenal.
While knowing when to invert or overlap while attacking is a plus point. Calum Chambers is known for his ability to adapt to the style the manager asks him to play. While giving it his all while on the pitch.
