Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal admits that he was "surprised" by the ability of Calum Chambers.

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has admitted that he has been taken aback by Calum Chambers's quality.

The 19-year-old signed from Southampton for around £16m in the summer, and the Spanish left-back believes that the youngster can shine for the Gunners for many years to come after watching him at close quarters.

He told the club's official website: "Calum has been a good surprise for me because I didn't meet him too much and also he's younger.

"He's played like he's played for a long time in the Premier League. He's a good player and an important player for us now and in the future because he's younger."
