Arsenal are asking for £15m for wantaway goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to various reports this weekend, angering both the German international and Fulham.

The Whites believed they had struck a deal with the Gunners after increasing their initial offer of £8.5m to £10m, but Arsenal have rejected both bids for the 30 year-old and are holding out for an even bigger bid. Leno, who has a year left on his current contract at the Emirates Stadium, is desperate to secure first team football as he still wants to regain his place in the German squad for this winter’s World Cup. He has dropped down Mikel Arteta’s pecking order after the summer arrival of American goalkeeper Matt Turner.

Fulham are believed to be considering their options given Arsenal’s intransigence with Marco Silva seeking an upgrade on Marek Rodak in goal as his side prepare for a return to the Premier League. They have agreed personal terms on a three-year deal with Leno, but both the player and the Cottagers are upset by Arsenal’s unwillingness to do a deal.
