Newly promoted Premier League side Fulham are in talks with Arsenal over the signing of goalkeeper Bernd Leno, Sky Sports News understands.

The German international has 12 months left to run on his contract, but has been on the periphery since the arrival of Aaron Ramsdale at Emirates Stadium in August 2021.

Leno arrived in north London from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018, firmly establishing himself as Arsenal's No 1 before being usurped by Ramsdale last season.

The 30-year-old made a total of eight appearances across 2021/22, with only four of those in Premier League competition. He also featured four times in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

USA international stopper Matt Turner will officially join Arsenal from New England Revolution on July 1 to provide competition for Ramsdale.
