Arsenal are ready to make a move for Southampton starlet Calum Chambers, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Gunners are growing increasingly unsure that Bacary Sagna will sign a new contract, who's current deal runs out at the end of the season.
Reports suggest that the French international has had his head turned by big money offers from the likes of PSG and Monaco and is disappointed that Arsenal have not met his request for a three-year deal.
It is now looking likely that Sagna will depart the Emirates in the summer and Arsenal have been forced to draw up a shortlist of replacements.
One of those is believed to be the 19-year-old Chambers, who impressed in the 2-2 draw against the Gunners last month.
The Saints starlet is the latest in a long line of youngsters to come out of the increasingly reputable Southampton academy and the club have placed a £10m price tag on his head.
If Arsenal can bring in their number one right-back target, it will be the third time they have raided Southampton for an academy graduate.
Both Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have made the switch to the Emirates in the past and have broken in to Arsene Wenger's first team.
Chambers is currently an England under-19 international but is expected to break in to the under-21 set up in the near future.
