Arsenal are set to receive a substantial £2 million windfall in transfer fees following Fulham’s successful retention of their Premier League status. This financial boost stems from a clause negotiated in the deal that saw Bernd Leno make the move to Fulham.

The Gunners had previously received a similar bonus from Fulham last season, and now, with the Cottagers securing their Premier League status once again, Arsenal stand to pocket another £2 million.

This lucrative arrangement was part of the initial £8 million deal struck between the two clubs back in August 2022. Fulham had paid only £3 million upfront for the services of the German shot-stopper, with the remaining £1 million contingent on Leno’s appearances.


Since joining Fulham, Leno, 32, has showcased impressive form, earning himself a new long-term contract that extends until the summer of 2027. In the current Premier League season, only Arsenal’s David Raya has managed to secure more clean sheets (12) than Leno, who has tallied nine clean sheets.

Under the leadership of manager Marco Silva, Fulham are aiming for a second consecutive top-half finish in the Premier League. Their survival was officially confirmed over the weekend following a convincing 2-0 victory over West Ham at the London Stadium.

Reflecting on his departure from Arsenal in August 2022, Leno shed light on the circumstances surrounding his exit, particularly in light of Aaron Ramsdale’s subsequent signing as the club’s new number one goalkeeper. Leno expressed his frustrations with the situation, citing similarities between his own experience and Ramsdale’s predicament.

“When I wanted to fight for my place,” Leno explained, “the goalkeeper coach said, ‘You have to leave the club.’ When he said it wasn’t about performance, I knew straight away I had to leave.”

Despite the circumstances surrounding his departure, Leno remains focused on his future at Fulham, where he continues to excel on the pitch. Arsenal, on the other hand, stands to benefit from the financial implications of Leno’s success, as the £2 million windfall adds to the club’s transfer kitty ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
