The impressive start by Chambers to life at the Emirates has provided manager Arsene Wenger with a dilemma over whether to enter the market again for a central defender. After the sale of Thomas Vermaelen, Wenger said he was keen to bring in someone new. However, the Arsenal boss may now consider that he is adequately covered.
Chambers appears to be revelling in his new surroundings.
As the team headed out to Turkey, the England Under-19 international tweeted a picture from the plane.
