Agent says Bernd Leno has other offers as Arsenal reject Fulham valuation

All Arsenal fans have been aware that Bernd Leno would be leaving the club ever since he was usurped by Aaron Ramsdale as Arsenal’s Number One, but here we are halfway through the summer transfer window and the German is sill on our squad list, and in fact is currently in America with the touring party.

It has been revealed for some time that Fulham are keen to take him on, but as usual, anyone who buys from Arsenal are expecting us to give our players away for a derisory price just to get them off our books, but at least this time the Gunners are digging in their heels, and are waiting for further offers to arrive before sanctioning Leno’s departure.

Joannis Koukoutrigas, the agent of Leno, is not too worried as he says that Fulham is not the only suitor, but strangely thinks he should still be first choice for Arteta every week.

“He is a German national goalkeeper, has always performed well at Arsenal and is an absolute team player,” Koukoutrigas said. “For me personally, Bernd is also the clear No.1 at Arsenal. With all due respect to the competitors.

“Fulham is trying hard to get Bernd. Very professionally. This is also true for some other clubs and shows his status. But, as I said, for me he is the No.1 at Arsenal and we are therefore also relaxed.”

Arsenal must be relaxed as well, considering that Leno is in the last year of his contract and we need to cash in this summer, so hopefully there really are lots of other clubs interested, or we could end up a cropper again….

  1. So an agent bigs up his player, reminding any would be suitor that he Leno, is the best keeper at Arsenal! Quelle surprise
    Of course it would be quite a incidental side product of LENOs higher than otherwise wages and transfer fee, that the said agent also befefits financially!

    Cynisism? Oh, surely not!

    Afte all, all we fans know with certainty that all agents have ONLY their PLAYERS best interests at heart, don’t we !

  2. Ramsdal’s form will slip at some time and there are enough games to keep Leno busy. Turner should be sent out on loan for a year (Fulham?)

  3. Ramsdale was anything but impressive in the second half of last season, and for me, Leno is the better keeper .He is worth much more than the 11m quoted in certain quarters.

    1. Grandad, agree totally and i wonder what will happen next season if Ramsdale gets injured at all because i will be extremely surprised if Turner turns out any better than Leno. The goalkeeping situation has been a strange one. Yes Leno, Ramsdale and Martinez are good goalkeeper but have we really ended up with a stronger two than Martinez and Leno. I have my reservations about that one.

  4. Are you guys serious? He has one year left on his contract and is about third in line in Arteras mind. 10 million was a fair offer from Fulham. Get your heads out of the clouds.

    1. Being third in line because of manager’s choice not because of his ability. Distinguish between the two.

  5. Arsenal needs the cash from Leno’s sale to help with incomings in other more critical areas of the pitch. I fully support what the club is doing in this regard

  6. Yes, Leno is still the best keeper. Don’t sell unless Leno himself wanted to leave. Now Arsenal has 4 – 5 keepers with the inclusion of Turner. With the Europa League, Arsenal needs both Ramsdale & Leno as their best keepers.
