Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has claimed that he sees his future at centre-half, or in a similar position to that of Francis Coquelin.

The 20-year-old was signed from Southampton as a right-back but has since predominantly been used at the heart of the defence, with Arsene Wenger previously expressing his desire to shift Chambers into a more central player.

The emergence of teammate Hector Bellerin also meant that for the ex-Southampton man to feature in the Arsenal side, he would have to shift position.

Despite featuring at right-back in the Spaniard’s absence on Saturday afternoon in the 2-1 win over Burnley, Chambers, as reported by the club’s official website, admitted that he sees his future either at the heart of the defence or in midfield.

Arsenal face Chambers’ former side on Tuesday evening when they take on Southampton at the Emirates Stadium, looking to move to the top of the Premier League table after a tough three games in which they have amassed just two points.
