Premier League club believe they will get Arsenal man before the transfer window closes

Fulham is increasingly confident that they will complete a move for Arsenal goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, in the coming days.

The German has lost his place in the current Gunners team to Bernd Leno, and they have just added Matt Turner to their squad.

This means Leno is now the club’s third choice, and he will struggle to get game time if he stays in north London.

Fulham is now looking to offer him a way out after they secured a return to the Premier League.

Marco Silva wants a new goalie, and he believes Leno is the ideal player for him.

The German will cost them around £10m, and they think the deal is making as much progress as they want, according to The Evening Standard.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Leno is a fine goalkeeper, and he knows he deserves to play regularly for a club now.

With the World Cup coming up in a few months, the 30-year will want to play regularly in this campaign.

At Fulham, he can achieve that, and their relentless pursuit of his signature means he will likely be their first choice if he moves there.

With the arrival of Turner, we are well covered in that department and can afford to allow him to leave the club.

    1. We paid half that amount for a US National GK. Brilliant piece of business by Mikel. Stupidity to sign a 3rd choice GK for the amount we paid then. Luck is on side that someone is really paying 10 grand to him. Nevertheless, thank you Leno, please go!

      1. “ We paid half that amount for a US National GK”

        I wonder why .

        “ Brilliant piece of business by Mikel”

        You watched him loads before we signed him did you ?

        1. Dan, i agree with you, lets wait and see if this American is actually any good. Fulham have a bargain.

  1. Our best keeper imo.He is worth more than 10m and I confidently expect him to prove it if he moves to Fulham.

  2. Interesting that a German international keeper is being compared to a USA keeper – a bit like comparing cheese and chalk in my opinion.

    We have got to respect Mikel’s decision regarding the players he decides to stay with – my gripe is why we are letting players go for such low prices.
    Is Ramsdale worth two and a half more in a transfer fee than Leno?
    Or, come to that, the fee we got for Martinez?

    As for Matt Turner, let’s at least give him a chance and not compare him to anyone else.

  3. Personally I didn’t see that match in Germany, but going from what I have herd, the new sit in goal keeper didn’t cover his self in glory.

    Its early days yet so the sensible thing to do is hold our horses, and wait a little to see what the new goalie is made of,
    The best thing to do maybe to keep Leno until the end of the season, that’s just my opinion.

  4. Think we got robbed as £10M is peanuts this day in age for a decent GK, wtf is going on with Arsenal selling players for f*ck-all regardless of then having 1year left on their contracts…
    Liverpool just sold that Williams kid for £16M nd Ryan Broster for £20M last season, two players who didn’t even taste a full EPL game yet alone a coupla seasons racking up games upon games, £8M for Guendozi nd theres now roumours of Torreras asking price is about the same,, kak money!! As I said before I don’t rate Edu as our Director of Football coz the man can’t negotiate to save his life.

  5. Hard to see the logic behind our recent goal-keeper decisions or rather blunders, to be accurate. The impressive Martinez was sold to AV for a bag of chips and the unimpressive Runnarson signed as backup.

    We then paid an arm and a leg to sign the inconsistent Ramsdale, who leaked goals like a sieve last season. The same applies to the recent purchase of the inexperienced master flopper, Matt Turner…after turning down the chance to sign the competent Matt Ryan.

    To top it all, we are now about to lose Bernd Leno, our world-class keeper, for peanuts!

    Just another addition to the deluge of decision-making blunders under this regime. At the same time we continue struggling to meet the asking price for top targets. Lovely!

  6. Leno isn’t world class. He’s a brilliant shot stopper but he has a lot of holes in his game and I believe he lacks the confidence of a true world class keeper – the difference in the defence when martinez played in his stead a couple of years ago said it all for me. All of a sudden the back four which previously looked terrified of anything near the box looked composed and confident (even mustafi was playing well!).
    I think we look better in general with ramsdale than with Leno, but agree that the jury’s still out on him to some extent. Leno’s clearly a better shot stopper, but ramsdale is better in every other area imo.
    Either way, I agree we could get more than 10m for Leno – other clubs would.

  7. Does Turner’s arrival necessarily mean Leno is 3rd choice?

    Especially after Turner’s performance in Germany.
