Arsenal prepared to sell Rob Holding and Calum Chambers?

Arsenal could be prepared to offload both Rob Holding and Calum Chambers this summer as they look to balance their books.

The Gunners are expected to announce the signing of Lille centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes for £27m and his arrival is due to be compensated with player exits.

Holding did impress with the limited game time under Mikel Arteta last term, but the club are still open to sanctioning his departure.

Newcastle United are exploring a loan move for his services, but The Mail claims that Leeds United could look to sign him on a permanent basis.

Meanwhile, Chambers is currently out on the sidelines after a long-term knee injury, but reports claim that his career with the Gunners could be over.

He has been linked with a potential return to Fulham for a fee of around £12m.

The England international was named the Cottagers’ Player of the Year during his loan stint between 2018 and 2019.

William Saliba and Gabriel are being touted as the potential long-term pairing at the heart of the Gunners defence.
