Southampton have already seen Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert follow manager Mauricio Pochettino to a St Mary’s exit and Dejan Lovren looks set to continue the exodus with a £20m move to Liverpool set to be completed.
Chambers broke into the Saints first team set-up in August 2012 and has made 24 appearances for the south-coast side and follows the likes of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in completing a move from Southampton to Arsenal.
The move would bring Arsenal’s spending this summer to over £50m with Wenger forking out around £35m for Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez and £11m for Newcastle United right-back Debuchy.
