Arsenal have rejected Fulham’s £7 million bid for Bernd Leno, which included a £3 million add-on fee.
Bernd Leno has lost his starting spot to Aaron Ramsdale, and Arsenal’s acquisition of Matt Turner has made matters worse.
The German doesn’t fit Arteta’s preferred building-from-the-back strategy for his team. Although Leno is a great shot stopper, he struggles when the ball is at his feet.
Despite Arsenal’s rejection of the offer, there is growing optimism that a deal could ultimately be reached.
Arsenal is willing to sell if Fulham can match their demand of at least £10 million up front.
