Fulham are holding discussions with Paris Saint-Germain about a potential loan move for goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, according to a Sky Sports News report.

The Whites are poised to send Marcus Bettinelli on loan to Middlesbrough this week and are now in the market for an experienced back up to Marek Rodak, who is expected to be their number one in the Premier League this season. Areola, who has won three senior caps for France, spent last season on loan at Real Madrid as part of the deal that took Keylor Navas to PSG, making nine appearances in total for the Spanish giants.

The 27 year-old was a highly rated goalkeeper in youth football, who had forged a big reputation as he came through the youth ranks at PSG. He made his league debut in 2013 and spent successive season-long loan spells with Lens, Bastia and Villarreal. Areola has made 107 senior appearances for his boyhood club, helping them win back-to-back titles in 2016/2017 and 2017/18, although he eventually lost his place in the side to summer signings.
