Everton are keeping tabs on Calum Chambers' situation at Arsenal, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.
Chambers has struggled to nail down a regular place in the Arsenal side this season, making just one start in the Premier League against Liverpool.
The 20-year-old has made just nine appearances in all competitions with most of his appearances coming off the bench.
Chambers is thought to be concerned with his lack of playing time at Arsenal and the news has alerted a number of their Premier League rivals.
Everton are monitoring Chambers' situation and are ready to move for the England international if they are given any encouragement he could be tempted to leave the Emirates Stadium.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez could be in the market for defensive reinforcements as doubts continue to surround the long-term future of John Stones with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United reporting to be weighing up moves for the England man.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is unlikely to be willing to offload Chambers with the Frenchman a big fan of the former Southampton youngster, but Chambers will want to have more assurances over his first-team chances.
