Wonderkid News… Arsenal win the chase for Chamberlain
Despite interest from a number of Premier League clubs including Manchester City, Liverpool and Newcastle United, the 17-year old midfielder has elected to join the Gunners.
Visiting Arsenal’s training ground on Friday, Chamberlain met manager Arsene Wenger and agreed to sign a £10m deal after talks with chief executive Ivan Gatzidis on Wednesday.
An initial payment of £7m is likely to be followed by supplementary fees when the England U-18 international reaches the first team. However, it is still uncertain whether or not the North London side will decide to loan Chamberlain back to the Saints for the rest of the season.
