GOOD MORNING GOONERS

Newly-promoted Fulham are in talks to sign goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Arsenal.

The German stopper is widely expected to leave the Emirates this summer, having fallen behind Aaron Ramsdale in the pecking order, and following the arrival of back-up Matt Turner.

However, Leno’s agent Joannis Koukoutrigas believes that his player should still be considered Arsenal’s number one and could yet remain in North London.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are willing to buy Christopher Nkunku for a record transfer fee.

RB Leipzig have reportedly slapped a £100m tag on Nkunku, according to The Express.

But the Gunners are willing to pay the price for the 24-year-old, unlike Prem rivals Man United.

Elsewhere, Dusan Vlahovic has revealed he never had any intention of joining Arsenal as Juventus was the only club on his mind.

He said: “Maybe my agent knows [about Arsenal’s offer] but I never talked to anyone about it.

“I just had one club in my mind because Juventus is Juventus. There is nothing else to say, and now I feel honoured to be given this jersey. It’s incredible every time I put it on.

“I definitely identify with their DNA. The Juventus personality coincides with my personality.

“When you come here you never give up, you fight all the time, you make the sacrifices. This was definitely what I was looking for.”

Finally, Arsenal defender Pablo Mari is being tracked by AC Milan and Lazio, reports claim.

Mari made waves in the Serie A last season while on loan with Udinese.

And Milan view him as the ideal man to marshal their defence if they miss out on Sven Botman.

Likewise, Lazio will turn to Mari if they fail to land Alessio Romagnoli, according to Corriere dello Sport.
