According to the BBC’s David Ornstein, Calum Chambers is set to sign a new long-term contract with the club.
The 23 year old was handed an extension back in November 2017, but apparently new boss Unai Emery wants to give him every chance to fulfill his potential at Arsenal.
Calum Chambers will today sign a new 4yr contract with Arsenal to keep him there until 2022. Only signed 2yr extension in Oct 2017 that tied him down until 2021 but new head coach Unai Emery sees huge potential in 23yo + wants him to compete for starting berth at centre-back #AFC

After an injury hit start to the season, Chambers made 24 appearances in all competitions, and this reported new contract is a show of faith in him from the new head coach.
With the signing of 29 year old Sokratis Papastathopoulos set to be confirmed in the coming days, the club are also looking to ensure they have young talented defenders coming through.
Rob Holding recently signed a new deal, tying him down for the next four seasons, while young Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos joined in January and showed some promise in a couple of end-of-season appearances.
