Arsenal have rejected an offer of £20million from Leicester City for defender Calum Chambers, according to reports.

The Foxes strengthened their backline already this summer with the arrival of Harry Maguire – who earned his first England call-up last week – from Championship side Hull City.

However, they may be looking for further reinforcements as Sky Sports claim that the Gunners have turned down an offer from Leicester for the 22-year-old with Craig Shakespeare tracking Chambers for some time.

Chambers joined the Gunners in 2014 in a deal worth £16million and made 36 appearances in his debut campaign at the Emirates Stadium.

He only played 22 times the following season, leading to him spending 2016-17 on loan at fellow Premier League side Middlesbrough, who were relegated to the Championship.
