Fulham are reportedly interested in a transfer move for Arsenal defender Calum Chambers.
According to a report from Sky Sports, Fulham, who recently won the Championship’ playoff final netting a massive estimated £160m for the club, are looking to make several transfers this summer and Chambers is a top target.
Two Arsenal players were on Fulham’s list of targets last summer, with Chambers being heavily scouted but also Lucas Perez who’s future with the Gunners is heavily doubted.
The English defender has made 25 appearances for the North London side this season and has proved, at times, to be a solid defender if inexperienced.
However, the Times are reporting that the North London club are demanding more than £22m for Calum Chambers and are unwilling to let the defender go unless the figure is met.
The move may go fairly unopposed by fans with the strong likelihood that both Caglar Soyuncu and Sokratis will be joining the club. As well as this, the arrival of Swiss international Stephan Lichtsteiner has made the defence even more crowded for the season ahead.
With several defensive signings taking place this summer, the likelihood of Shkodran Mustafi exiting the club soon is very likely but Calum Chambers’ departure could be making space for Shkodran to stay.
Rumours linking the club to youth star Ryan Sessegnon are weak, but they are certainly exciting. The departure of Calum Chambers could be a blow for some fans who have seen the 23-year-old develop since coming to the Emirates from Southampton in 2014.
