Arsenal star set for shock loan move to London rivals

Fulham are closing in on the signing of Arsenal defender Calum Chamber on a season-long loan deal.

BBC Sport are reporting that an agreement has been reached between the two clubs, but personal terms are yet to be finalised.



Chambers, a £16m signing from Southampton in 2014, recently signed a new long-term contract at the Emirates, and it was reported that Unai Emery saw the defender as a key part of his long-term plans.

A loan move to Fulham therefore holds an element of surprise following Emery’s backing of Chambers, but with central defensive additions including Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, there may be minimal playing time available for the Englishman and a loan could be mutually beneficial for all concerned.

Fulham have been rampant yet clinical in the transfer window following their promotion to the Premier League, with key signings including Alfie Mawson from Swansea (£20m), Aleksandar Mitrovic from Newcastle (£22m), Jean Michael Seri from Nice and Andre Schurrle on loan from Borrusia Dortmund.



Slavisa Jokanovic will be hopeful that a central defensive parternship of Mawson and Chambers could provide the foundation for Fulham to kick on and cement their status in the division for 2019/2020, though once again the Cottagers have executed some outstanding business and given themselves a real chance of retaining their place in the Premier League.
