'Poch is drunk' – Tottenham fans react as reports emerge of raid on bitter PL rivals
By Danny Wright
Tottenham fans are not pleased that their club is reportedly looking to sign Arsenal defender Calum Chambers in the summer.
The Daily Mail reported that Mauricio Pochettino is planning a move for the defender in order to strengthen his back line ahead of next season.
Pochettino worked alongside the 22-year-old in his days at Southampton before he secured a move to Arsenal for a fee worth up to £16million.
Chambers has not been given much of a chance to impress at the Emirates under the leadership of Arsene Wenger and he is currently on a season-long loan at struggling Middlesbrough.
Spurs supporters aren’t convinced however, especially as he’s currently playing for a team threatened with relegation this season, although some think the player could be resurrected under Pochettino.

Chambers made one appearance for Arsenal this season when he scored on the opening day in the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool.
He was shipped out on loan to Boro as Wenger couldn’t promise the three-time England international regular first-team football.
The centre-back, who can also play on the right side of a back four, has made 18 appearances for the Riverside club but his temporary stay in the north east has been scuppered by a foot injury in recent weeks.
