Agent says Bernd Leno has other offers as Arsenal reject Fulham valuation

0

All Arsenal fans knew Bernd Leno would be leaving the club since he was usurped by Aaron Ramsdale as Arsenal’s number one, but here we are halfway through the summer transfer window and the German is still on our team roster, and in fact is currently in America with the tour.

It’s been revealed for some time that Fulham are keen to take him, but as usual everyone who buys from Arsenal expects us to give away our players at a pittance just to get them off our books, but at least this time the Gunners are stubborn and waiting for other offers to arrive before sanctioning Leno’s departure.

Joannis Koukoutrigas, Leno’s agent, isn’t too worried as he says Fulham aren’t the only suitor but strangely thinks he should still be first choice for Arteta every week.

“He’s a German national goalkeeper, he’s always performed well at Arsenal and he’s an absolute team player,” Koukoutrigas said. “For me personally, Bernd is also the undisputed number 1 at Arsenal. With all due respect to competitors.

“Fulham are trying to get Bernd. Very professionally. This is also true for some other clubs and shows its status. But, as I said, for me he is the No.1 at Arsenal and so we are also relaxed.

Arsenal also need to be relaxed, given that Leno is in the final year of his contract and we have to cash in this summer, so hopefully there are really plenty of other clubs interested, or we could end up again a crop….
