Leno was first-choice goalkeeper at Arsenal between 2018 and 2021, but lost his place in the first team shortly after the arrival of Aaron Ramsdale last summer.

The German made just four Premier League appearances all campaign during 2021-22. He also featured four times across the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

Marek Rodak and Paulo Gazzaniga shared goalkeeping duties for Marco Silva’s side as they were promoted last season.

Leno would be Fulham’s fourth permanent first-team signing of the summer, after the arrivals of Joao Palinha, Andreas Pereira and Kevin Mbabu. They have also brought Manor Solomon in from Shakhtar Donetsk in a temporary deal.
