Arsenal have confirmed the exit of Calum Chambers for the forthcoming season, with the England international spending the campaign on loan with Fulham.

23-year-old Chambers is set for his second loan spell in the Premier League, previously spending the 2016-17 campaign with Middlesbrough, and the approval of his exit has raised eyebrows – with the expectation that Arsenal will now look to bring in another central defender.

Chambers remains highly-rated in north London and his versatility, which sees him able to play in the centre of defence, on the right or in defensive midfield, could prove to be a valuable asset in the coming years.

Arsenal approved the deal in order for Chambers to earn an increased amount of first-team football that he would at the Emirates Stadium and Gunners boss Unai Emery revealed he expects the loan to be a crucial part of his development.

Quoted by the club’s official website, he said:

“Calum is a talented defender who has a bright future. We all believe this loan at Fulham will be an important part of his development and wish him a successful season.”
