LENO CLOSING IN ON FULHAM MOVE
Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno is closing in on a move to newly promoted team Fulham after the German international reached an agreement with the club over his salary as reported in the media. German news outlet Bild confirmed those reports of a move to Fulham for Leno as it was revealed that the former Bayer Leverkusen shot stopper is on the verge of signing for the Cottagers.
London club Fulham have been seriously linked with a move for Lenoover the course of the last few months, but the reported interest went cold in the past few weeks until recently when it was stated that the Arsenal shot stopper has agreed a dealto be the new goalkeeper for Fulham. With an agreement in place between Fulham and the player, the newly promoted team will have toreach an agreement with Arsenalto sign Leno. The German has 12 months left on his Arsenal contract at the moment and a fee of around £10m has been reported as what it would take for the transfer.
Arsenal paid around £22m when they signed Leno from Bayer Leverkusen during the summer transfer window in 2018. The German international was the first choice goalkeeper at the club until he was usurped by England international Aaron Ramsdale at the start of last season. He was restricted to just four Premier League matches last season. Leno is keen to leave Arsenal this summer in search of regular first team football with the World Cup tournament in Qatar some months away.
