The BBC's David Ornstein has claimed that Arsenal are set to loan Calum Chambers to Premier League rivals Fulham (via The BBC).

West London Sport revealed Fulham's initial interest in the 23-year-old and he remained a top target for the Whites.

But after deciding Chambers would not be part of his first choice central defensive pairing, boss Unai Emery has agreed to allow the player to leave on loan.

But with Laurent Koscielny, new signing Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Shkodran Mustafi and youngster Dinos Mavropanos all providing healthy competition, the former Southampton player has had to make the short trip to Fulham in search of regular playing time.

He is poised to join new signing Alfie Mawson at Fulham, whose £15m arrival from Swansea was recently confirmed by the club.

Slavisa Jokanovic's side begin their top-flight return at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday and have made a number of eye-catching signings, including Jean Michael Seri, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Andre Schurrle.
