According to The Times (£), newly promoted Fulham are reportedly interested in signing Calum Chambers but Arsenal’s £22 million asking price could well scupper negotiations.
After impressing on loan with Middlesbrough in 2016/17, the England international nearly left the Emirates last summer with both Leicester City and Crystal Palace lodging bids in the region of £25 million. In the end, Arsene Wenger decided to keep the 23-year-old centre-back and he went on to pen a contract extension in October.
Chambers, who was signed for £16 million from Southampton in 2014, made 24 appearances last season but will no doubt be wondering what the future holds under new coach Unai Emery.
The Gunners have already signed veteran right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free and are understood to be close to signing Sokratis from Borussia Dortmund. We’ve also been linked with Turkey international Caglar Soyuncu, currently plying his trade with Bundesliga side Freiburg.
