Arsenal have reduced their asking price for Bernd Leno, according to the Evening Standard in England.
Fulham are the only club in Europe interested in Arsenal’s German shot-stopper. After weeks of negotiations, it appears that both London clubs are on the verge of reaching a deal.
The cost being stated is £8 million, which is less than what the North London outfit had hoped for.
After rarely playing last season and the recent addition of USMNT international Matt Turner, all signs point to Leno’s departure from the Emirates Stadium, four years after his arrival.
Leno is reported to be open to a move to Fulham because he wants to stay in London and play in the Premier League.
With the World Cup approaching, it’s understandable that the 30-year-old would prefer to make a fresh start someplace, and sooner rather than later.
The German has been a solid addition for Arsenal, keeping 37 clean sheets in 125 outings.
