Intermediaries have offered Calum Chambers to AS Roma but the Serie A club are prioritising a move for Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot.

Reports in the Italian media suggest Calum Chambers has been offered to AS Roma.

Il Corriere dello Sport (via Football-Italia) claim the 26-year-old is reportedly keen to leave North London for playing time, though Roma themselves are not convinced about the signing.

Whilst Jose Mourinho is certainly looking for a new right-back, his number-one option is Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot.

RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Henrichs is another alternative struggling for gametime.

As for Chambers, Roma seem unwilling to hold talks with the player’s camp at this stage.

You’d imagine there will be interest in Chambers next summer, as his contract with Arsenal comes to an end.

Foreign clubs will be able to speak to him about a free transfer and a pre-contract agreement in January.

But Roma don’t seem enthusiastic.

The chances of Chambers sticking around at Arsenal appear to be minimal.

After he initially took on a fairly important role for Mikel Arteta following his recovery from injury last season, Chambers has only made one appearance since August – and it was as a substitute.

If that doesn’t change, it’s hard to see the defender signing an extension, although the club don’t seem in a rush to offer one.

It’s a shame to lose a homegrown player with plenty of Premier League experience but Calum Chambers needs to be playing.

The latest odds for Arsenal to win the premier league is 66/1 based on SportNation website.
