Arsenal have been charged by the Football Association for allegedly breaching football agents regulations over the transfer of Calum Chambers from Southampton.
England defender Chambers moved to the Emirates last summer in a deal reported to be worth £16m, but the Gunners appear to have broken the rules in their pursuit of the 20-year-old.
Arsenal, who have until June 26 to answer the charge, insist that they “acted in good faith”.

Authorised agent Alan Middleton has also been charged and has until next Wednesday to respond.
Chambers, who is capable of playing in the centre or on the right side of defence, made 36 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions last season.
He is currently with the England Under-21 squad preparing for the European Championships in the Czech Republic.
