Newcastle United and Everton are both interested in Arsenal defender Calum Chambers, according to the Chronicle.
The England under-21 international impressed last season on loan at Middlesbrough and is allegedly interesting the Premier League pair, although the same report suggests Newcastle may balk at a £15million asking price.
But the Magpies would be wise to match that valuation in what is set to be a busy summer for Rafa Benitez as Chambers, crucially, can cover at both right-back and centre-back.
Newcastle have already seen Vurnon Anita and Kevin Mbabu leave the club in this transfer window, while, in the middle, Grant Hanley has been linked with a number of Championship side - including Sheffield Wednesday in The Star.
Benitez's alternative right-back options to DeAndre Yedlin lack the Premier League experience of Chambers, who would also be able to compete with Jamaal Lascelles, Ciaran Clark and Chancel Mbemba for a central berth.
The Chronicle have claimed Newcastle are wanting up to 12 signings this summer as they prepare for a return to the top flight and Chambers' versatility would mean killing two birds with one stone at the back.
