Leno is keen to play regular football this season, and Fulham is on the hunt for a goalkeeper.
It seems a good match, even allowing the 30-year-old the chance to stay in the Premier League and in London.
To confirm interest in the player, The Athletic reported this week that Fulham was still in talks to sign Leno from Arsenal.
David Ornstein initially broke the news of the talks, with Sky Sports later confirming contact between the two clubs.
The Evening Standard also then reported that Fulham is interested in a move for Leno.
The goalkeeper spoke with Edu before the end of the season and they reportedly agreed he could leave.
Speaking to the media earlier in the summer, Bernd Leno’s agent Joannis Koukoutrigas said
“Yes, Fulham is trying hard to get Bernd,” Koukoutrigas confirmed. “Very professionally.
“This is also true for some other clubs and shows his status.
“But as I said, for me, he is the number 1 at Arsenal and we are therefore also relaxed.”
