The defender Calum Chambers joined Arsenal with great fanfare when he left Southampton, but depite his great promise he rarely managed to hold down a regular place in the Gunners first team.

He gained accolades on loan at Middlesbrough two seasons ago, but again when brought back to the Arsenal last season, he only started 12 League matches as cover for Mustafi and Koscielny. Now that it is obvious that Unai Emery is making big defensive changes with the arrivals of Stephan Lichtsteiner and Sokratis, and the possibility of Calgar Soyuncu also seeming very probable. So could Chambers find himself even further down the pecking order after 4 seasons at Arsenal?

According to Sky News our neighbours Fulham are looking to take him across London to give him regular football. They reported: Fulham have reignited their interest in Arsenal defender Calum Chambers, according to Sky sources.

The 23-year-old was one of their top targets last summer along with his then Gunners team-mate Lucas Perez, who returned to Deportivo La Coruna.

Chambers is high on their list again this summer as the Whites look to build a squad that can survive in the Premier League next season.

So do you think it is time to give up on Chambers? He is still only 23 so he could still improve considerably, so should he kept as a backup option until then?
