Arsene Wenger believes his fourth-choice centre-half Calum Chambers will be an England star.
Chambers will make a rare appearance against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night, over a month since his last first-team appearance.
“Calum can play in midfield, he can play central defender. I think in the future he will certainly be a central defender, but he can also play right back,” said Wenger.
“That versatility will help him in the future because he will tactically know more about the game, he will be technically better prepared and physically he will be at the top, top level.
“I’m confident that Calum will be a successful England player.”
Chambers will be joined by forgotten striker Joel Campbell, with Wenger saying: “I like Joel Campbell very much for two reasons. One is that he has outstanding individual quality, but he is also a team player.
“He works very hard for the team. I’m convinced he will get a chance here and that he will take it.
“He has another opportunity against Sheffield Wednesday and I’m hopeful that he will show that he has the quality to play for Arsenal.”
