Both Newcastle United and West Ham United are interested in out-of-favour Arsenal defender Calum Chambers, according to The Mirror.

The versatile England international defender has been sent out on loan to Middlesbrough this season and his future looks to lie away from the Emirates Stadium.

Newcastle are closing in on promotion from the Championship back to the Premier League, with a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic on Saturday moving Rafa Benitez’s men one step closer to top-flight football.

West Ham meanwhile are expected to splash the cash this summer, with defensive cover and a new right-back the order of the day for the London Stadium side.


Chambers’ versatility of being able to play at either centre-half or full-back will be of interest to a number of suitors, with the report suggesting that both teams, plus Everton, are willing to spend over £10 million on the defender.

Newcastle will surely need to strengthen if they make the move back to the Premier League, while West Ham are struggling with an underwhelming campaign at present.
