Fulham: Ex makes exciting claim on potential new signing

ExWHUemployee has claimed that Bernd Leno could be about to join newly promoted to the Premier League side Fulham this summer.

Premier League side Arsenal are reportedly going to sell seven players this summer, and one of them is Bernd Leno, which has caught the attention of Fulham, who are reportedly close to signing the German keeper, who was an outcast for the North London club last season.

Aaron Ramsdale was brought into Arsenal at the start of last season, and this meant that Leno was dropped to the bench and did not feature regularly. The 30-year-old featured just four times in the Premier League for the Gunners last season, so he might be keen on a move away from the Emirates.

With Leno not featuring heavily for the Gunners last season, and Fulham showing interest in him, Ex spoke on The Transfer Show and claimed that the move looks like it could happen in the upcoming weeks.

(8:01) “Leno to Fulham is the deal that we said before, and it looks like that could happen,” Ex said.

TIF Thoughts on Ex’s comments…

With Fulham gaining promotion to the Premier League last season, they have signed Joao Palhinha from Sporting Lisbon for £18 million, but in order to compete in the league next season, they will be hoping to bring in some new faces to the squad before the season starts.

Leno would be a good option for Fulham as he would add much-needed Premier League experience to their squad after he has made 101 appearances in the top flight of England over the past four seasons he has been with the Gunners.

Last time in the Premier League, Fulham got relegated the season after they got promoted, and Leno could be a good second signing for them, but to stop this from happening again they will need to add more players to the squad in other areas of the field.
