Calum Chambers is reportedly on Mikel Arteta's chopping board this summer.

Chambers played an important part in Unai Emery's team last season and was a regular in the early weeks of Arteta's tenure at the Emirates.

The north London club are therefore said to be ready to sanction the departure of the defender, with newly-promoted Fulham understood to be keen on a move.

The 25-year-old joined Arsenal in the summer of 2015 from Southampton under then manager Arsene Wenger.

He played alongside Arteta for two seasons before the current Gunners' boss retired from the game of football.

He spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Craven Cottage, largely featuring as a defensive midfielder.

Newly-promoted Fulham are understood to be keen on a move for the Englishman and could submit a bid this summer.

The Cottagers return to the top-flight therefore means they will be keen to make a number of signings who will help them stay up at the end of next season.
