Bernd Leno has ‘verbally agreed’ personal terms ahead of a proposed move from Arsenal to Fulham, according to reports from his native Germany this evening.

The 30 year-old goalkeeper has been made available for transfer by the Gunners this summer after Matt Turner moved to the Emirates to become Mikel Arteta’s number two in goal. Leno is eager to play regular first-team football in order to earn a place in the Germany squad for the World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year and is attracted to staying in London.

Sky Sports Germany correspondent Florian Plettenburg reports that Leno has agreed terms with Fulham on a three-year deal, with the Whites holding an option to extend that contract by a further year. Plettenburg claims that Arsenal and Fulham are yet to agree a fee, with the Gunners holding out for at least £10m for a goalkeeper who is out of favour and has less than twelve months left on his current deal.
