FULHAM have reached an agreement with Arsenal to buy goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to reports.
The deal is supposedly worth just £8million with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta giving the move the green light.
Sky Sports claim that the German stopper is now set for discussions over personal terms and is due to undergo a medical.
The 30-year-old had fallen out of favour at the Emirates Stadium after the signing of Aaron Ramsdale last summer.
Leno started the first three Premier League games that all ended in defeat and was consequently dropped playing just five more times for the club.
Overall, Leno was Arsenal's first choice for three seasons following a £22.5million switch from Bayer Leverkusen, he playing a total of 125 times for the North London side.
