Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno is set to quit Emirates Stadium for another Premier League club Fulham, according to a report from England.
The 30-year-old goalkeeper moved to North Lomdon on five years deal from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen on 19 June 2018 but the stopper was the club’s number one for three years and successfully fended off competition from Emiliano Martinez who depart Gunners for Aston Villa.
Leno lost his number positions to Aaron Ramsdale last season and was signed from Sheffield United last summer after the former Leverkusen ace conceded nine goals in Arsenal’s first three Premier League games last term against Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City.
The German goalkeeper is desperate to quits Mikel Arteta’s side this summer to search for regular playing time ahead of November FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
According to The Athletic claim that Arsenal and Fulham who just returned to the Premier League have reached an eight million pounds transfer fee after personal terms were agreed with Leno.
Arsenal is believed to be insisting on £10m for the shot-stopper but the North London outfit eventually lowered their asking price with Leno having one year left on his current contract with Gunners.
Leno will undergo his medical this week ahead of his potential move to Craven Cottage to become the fourth player to arrive at Fulham this summer after Kevin Mbabu, Andreas Pereira and Joao Palhinha, as coach Marco Silva seeks to avoid immediate relegation back down to the Sky Bet Championship with the Cottagers.
Germany international has been involved for Arsenal in pre-season and will leave Emirate Stadium after keeping 37 clean sheets in 125 matches for the club since arriving in a £22.5m deal in the summer of 2018.
Leno will become nine players to depart Arsenal this current transfer window after Alexandre Lacazette, Dinos Mavropanos, Matteo Guendouzi, Dan Ballard, Zak Swanson and Omari Hutchinson, while Nuno Tavares and Auston Trusty have left on loan.
