West Ham, Everton keen on Arsenal defender

Calum Chambers news

Chambers wanted by West Ham & Everton

West Ham United and Everton are among the top sides keeping tabs on Arsenal defender Calum Chambers ahead of this summer's transfer window.

The England international is currently on a temporary deal at Middlesbrough, where he has managed to form an excellent partnership alongside Ben Gibson in central defence.

Chambers has been overlooked for both the centre-back and right-back positions at the Emirates, and according to The People, the likes of West Ham and Everton could pounce on his services in the summer.

The 22-year-old has had a niggling foot problem which has restricted his playing time in recent months, but his stock, nevertheless, appears to be rising given Boro's struggles to keep cleansheets in his absence.

The former Southampton graduate is currently contracted to Arsenal until the summer of 2019, and the club will be in no hurry to sell unless the player pushes for a potential exit.

Chambers is due to play some part for Boro in the final stages of the campaign, but it looks more likely that they will be relegated owing to their lack of goals during the course of the campaign.
