Arsenal chief Edu is said to have agreed to let goalkeeper Bernd Leno off this summer.

After some talks with the German, he was allowed to seek the transfer to another club this coming season.

When Leno joined the club he was the number one choice of the coach. However, now he has lagged behind Aaron Ramsdale who is the current number one goalkeeper for Arsenal.

Moreover, with some brilliant performances under the goal, Ramsdale has cemented his position at Arsenal’s goal. This has led him to get a call-up from the English national team as well.

Therefore, if Leno is to stay with the Gunners, he has to stay as the second-choice goalkeeper for the foreseeable future.

Now, Evening Standard reports that he is being targeted by newly-promoted Fulham this season.

Fulham would have a very good bargain if they succeed in bringing Leno to their side. He could prove crucial to the club’s prospects of surviving in the Premier League for another season.

Who would be Ramsdale’s backup at Arsenal?  

Since Leno has been given clearance to leave the Emirates, it is obvious that he would not stay at the club.

However, if he is to leave Arsenal would be requiring a backup goalkeeper for Ramsdale.

A report states that Matt Turner is on his way to England from the MLS side New England Revolution this summer. The American is set to complete his move to the English club by 1st July.

Therefore, Ramsdale would continue to remain Arteta’s number one choice under the goalpost. However, Turner could become the second-in-hand at the Emirates replacing Leno.

Arsenal are yet to confirm the signing of the goalkeeper from the New England Revolution.

However, the US national football team had already announced the American’s signing on their official Twitter page. However, the post seemed to have been put up by mistake.
