Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is set to spend the upcoming season on loan with Fulham as the two clubs have agreed a deal for him to move, according to Sky Sports.

The England international has been in the Premier League for some time having made his debut for Southampton back in the 2013-14 season, before moving to the Emirates Stadium.

He arrived in London in July 2014, but although Arsenal have had a number of defensive issues since he sign, he has never truly established himself in the first team, and two seasons ago was loaned out to Middlesbrough.

He was unable to keep them in the Premier League and returned to the Emirates, but once again he was reduced to being a bit part player in a thoroughly disappointing campaign for the Gunners.

Fulham are preparing for their first season back in the top flight after winning the Championship play-off final last season. They have reinforced their front line and now Slavisa Jokanovic is preparing his defence for the test that lies ahead.

Chambers has made over 130 appearances in all competitions in his career, so he will be taking a great deal of experience with him to Craven Cottage.

He has also been selected to play for England on three occasions, so he has played at the highest level which could be invaluable as he embarks on a season at Fulham.

It is believed the two clubs have agreed a deal for the 23-year-old, so all that needs to be sorted now is personal terms and a medical, and once that is completed he will head to Craven Cottage where he will link up with fellow new signing Alfie Mawson.

Chambers signed a long-term deal at the Emirates Stadium last month, so he is still well thought of in North London, but his immediate future appears to be in the west of the capital city.
