The Lowdown: Mass exodus?
After completing the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, it seems as if Mikel Arteta’s side are now focusing on outgoings.
Leno has been strongly linked with a permanent move to Fulham, but a deal has not materialised as of yet.
The Latest: Leno update
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones has now shared that the proposed move for Leno has been ‘very frustrating’, after speaking to some people close to the deal:
“They’ve been trying to do this for weeks now, Fulham. I’ve spoken to some people close to the deal who said it has been very frustrating. Goalkeepers and centre-backs are two areas that they need to fix as a priority, and they’ve been looking to the Premier League for those solutions.”
The Verdict: Sell
Given the arrival of Matt Turner, who is expected to be the understudy to Aaron Ramsdale for next season, Leno’s game time is likely to be limited, and so now is the right time for the North London club to part ways.
Should Arsenal sell Leno?
The Germany international is one of the highest earners at the Emirates Stadium on £100,000-per-week, and those wages, on top of a respectable transfer fee, would free up room in the budget to go and buy other targets.
