Arsenal transfer news live

The 23-year-old - whose worldwide career has stalled since joining Arsenal from Southampton in 2014 with the last of his three caps coming four years ago - says he is keen to prove he is worthy of a regular run out for the first team to new manager Unai Emery.

Arsenal appear to be in pole position according to reports but Spurs are clearly interested as well which means we could get a North London tussle for Gomes.

He made 24 appearances last season as Arsenal finished sixth in the Premier League and reached the Europa League semi-finals.

Chambers will be hoping to impress Unai Emery during pre-season as he fights for a regular place in the Arsenal defence, with the new head coach pleased to have the England worldwide on board.

Valencia have confirmed they would like to take Gomes back on loan but the Spanish champions would prefer to sell and recoup some of the money they spent on him in 2016.

The former Blackburn and Stoke midfielder has seen his reputation soar in La Liga, becoming part of the France setup and being linked with club like the Gunners after establishing himself as one of the league's most effective defensive midfielders.

'I'm really proud, really pleased and excited for this season and what lies ahead, ' he told Arsenal Player.

Signed by Arsene Wenger, Chambers will now continue his career at the club under the management of new boss Unai Emery, who succeeded the Frenchman earlier this summer.
