Maty Ryan and Granit Xhaka both react to news coming out of Arsenal yesterday
However, the transfer has finally been done, and the German international could be set to start the season opener against Liverpool on Saturday, after leaving the Emirates Stadium yesterday.
Leno spent four seasons at Arsenal, becoming a popular figure within the squad and being Arsenal’s number one for his first three years in north London.
Ryan and Xhaka react to Leno news
Leno’s Arsenal teammates have wished the German all the best on his transfer to Fulham, who said: “Hey Arsenal fans, it’s time to move for me. It’s been a pleasure to be part of this great football club for 4 amazing years.”
Leno is unlikely to be the last outgoing at The Emirates this summer, with several first team players expected to leave.
Defender Pablo Mari could be next out of the door, with several Serie A clubs keen to sign the Spaniard.
Leno will still aspire to join up with Germany for the World Cup in November, and wasn’t going to improve his chances by sitting on Arsenal’s bench.
He’s sure to have plenty to do at new club Fulham, with one of the world’s best attacks visiting the Cottage at the weekend.
