Chambers close to Gunners move

Arsenal are reportedly close to signing Southampton defender Calum Chambers for £16 million ($33.7m).

According to Sky Sports, the England Under-21 international has already undergone a medical at the London club, and may soon become the Gunners' second summer signing, after their capture of Mathieu Debuchy.

The 19-year-old right back, who can also play as a central defender is set to follow Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw out of the club, with Dejan Lovren courted by Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger may send Carl Jenkinson out on loan, so that the England international can get more first-team football.

West Ham, Swansea, Sunderland and Hull City are thought to be interested in the defender, who is still rated highly by Wenger. ­- Wire Services.
