Southampton are interested in signing Calum Chambers, according to reports.
The Saints are looking to strengthen their squad despite the uncertainty surrounding their managerial position and have identified Chambers as a priority target.
Their need for a new defender has also been boosted by the constant speculations linking Virgil Van Dijk away from the club.
According to The Times, Southampton are prepared to spend in excess of the £16m we paid for the defender three years ago.
Chambers spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough and gave a good account of himself, now the saints are prepared to spend up to £20m to sign their former defender back.
Although Arsenal would prefer he spends another season out on loan, it is believed Wenger won’t block a permanent transfer should we receive a lucrative bid for his services.
A profit of £4m will definitely be enough to tempt Arsenal into selling a defender.
Newcastle, Everton and Bournemouth are also expected to make their moves as the transfer window progresses.
With just two years left in Chamber’s contract, this could be the perfect time to sell him.
