David Ornstein of the BBC has suggested that Southampton’s Calum Chambers has had a medical with Arsenal today after a fee was agreed between the north London club and Ronald Koeman’s new side.

Chambers would be the second right-back addition of the summer by Arsene Wenger’s side after they confirmed the signing of Mathieu Debuchy last week. The French international replaced Bacary Sagna, who left Arsenal on a free transfer at the end of last season to join Manchester City.
Arsenal have been exceptionally active in the transfer market thus far this summer, with Alexis Sanchez the club’s first addition. David Ospina, who impressed so heavily at the World Cup this summer, is also reported to be joining the Emirates Stadium club in the near future.
The addition of Chambers would be a real coup for the side, given the fact he is considered one of the more talented young full-backs in the country.
