Fulham to Sign Arsenal Defender Chambers on Loan

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers will complete a season-long loan move to Fulham, as per reports.

The centre-back will be given the opportunity to play regular first-team football in the Premier League with the Cottagers, although Unai Emery’s side are not currently interested in entertaining the idea of a permanent sale.

Chambers, who signed a new contract with the club in July, has been given the chance to impress during Arsenal’s pre-season, including in the most recent victories over Chelsea, as a late substitute, and Lazio.

Emery would prefer Chambers to receive more minutes this season, as he did as a regular at Middlesbrough in 2016-17, with the likes of Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding and Konstantinos Mavropanos all options at centre-back at the Emirates Stadium.

Indeed, both Holding and Mavropanos will remain with the first-team squad despite interest from rival clubs over loan deals.
