So far the Gunners boss has added Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac to the fold, and while holding on to his star players, Wenger still wants make some clear-outs to give room for more incoming players.

And after the departure of Yaya Sanogo and Wojciech Szczesny from the first team, Calum Chambers is also on his way out of the club, with Crystal Palace reported to be his next destination.

Frank De Boer’s side have reportedly held talks with Arsenal over a deal for the England international who has been valued at £25 million.

But according to Guardian journalists Ed Aarons, little progress has been made as far as the deal is concerned, as both clubs are yet to agree on a transfer fee.

The centre-back spent last season on loan at relegated Middlesbrough and a place in the Gunners team is not guaranteed while De Boer is interested in bringing him to Selhurst Park but the transfer fee could
stall the deal.

However, it remains to be seen if Crystal Palace are willing to meet QArsenal asking price.
