According to the Daily Mail, Watford remain interested in a move for Arsenal defender Calum Chambers.

The defender has found playing time hard to come by at the Emirates over the last year after initially impressing following his move from Southampton the summer before.

He made just 22 appearances in all competitions last season as Hector Bellerin continued to shine in the right back position.

He has been linked with a move away from the club this summer as a result, with the belief being time away would be in the best interests of his development.

According to the Daily Mail, one side who are interested in his signature is Watford, who are looking to build on a strong first season in the Premier League.

However, the newspaper reports that the Hornets would look to play him at centre back rather than as a right back.

It now remains to be seen whether Arsenal will sanction a move to Vicarage Road this summer.

They are looking for defensive additions themselves, and will wait until they have secured the signings they want before considering the offers on the table for their man.
