Chambers: I Am Learning From Mertesacker

share on:

Chambers has someone to look up to at Arsenal and that’s Per Mertesacker. With the defender hailing the Germany international’s positive impact.

Chambers who made the switch from Southampton to Arsenal in July of 2014, is glad to play alongside experienced defenders like Koscielny, Mertesacker and Gabriel.

“I speak to Per a lot,” Chambers told Arsenal Player. “Per is always there to help me out.

“In training if I ever need someone or I’m a bit confused I ask Per, Koscielny or Gabriel what they would do.

“They always tell me what they would do and it is good to learn from as they are top-quality players.”

Chambers had also attracted the interest of a number of other clubs when he joined Arsenal, but the presence of Arsene Wenger convinced him to join the Gunners.

“Wenger’s presence was a massive factor,” he added.

“Theo [Walcott] and Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain] came from Southampton as well and they’ve both come through to the first team.

“Wenger’s renowned for bringing young players through and developing them. That was a big factor in why I chose to come here, to work with him. I haven’t regretted it one bit.”
