Arsenal boss Wenger ponders central midfield role for Chambers

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is weighing up a midfield role for new signing Calum Chambers.

The Gunners' £12m signing is being tipped as a future England star.

Chambers, 19, played right-back at previous club Southampton and made his Arsenal debut at centre-half at the weekend.

The Arsenal boss has been so impressed with the youngster's adaptability that he is weighing up handing him the key holding midfield role for the new season, says the Daily Star.

Wenger has been linked with moves for Bayern Munich's Sami Khedira and Sporting Lisbon's William Carvalho.

But he is understood to be coming round to the idea of using Chambers in the middle, where he could feature against Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.
