'Chambers is nearing period when he'll blossom'

Arsene Wenger is confident that Calum Chambers is nearing the period in his career when he will “blossom”.

The England international signed a two-year contract extension at the club on Wednesday, and his manager is looking forward to seeing how he develops.

“He’s a young centre back and you know that he’s going towards his best period now,” Wenger said. “He played a complete season at Middlesbrough -on loan last year].

“Unfortunately at the moment he’s injured, but I believe it’s important we keep our young centre backs because they blossom at 24. It’s important to keep them during that period.”
