Arsenal set for seven-figure FFP windfall as transfer clause triggered


Arsenal are set to receive a £2million transfer windfall as Fulham secure their Premier League status thanks to a clause in the deal that took Bernd Leno to the Cottagers.

The Gunners received a similar bonus from Fulham last season and are now poised to pocket the same amount again, thanks to the add-ons negotiated in the initial £8m deal back in August 2022. Fulham paid just £3m upfront for the German shot-stopper, with the remaining £1m contingent on appearances.

Since his move to Craven Cottage, the 32-year-old has been in impressive form, earning him a new long-term contract until summer 2027. Only Arsenal stopper David Raya has kept more clean sheets (12) than Leno (nine) in the Premier League this season.

Marco Silva’s side are aiming for a second top-half finish in as many years, with their survival being mathematically confirmed at the weekend thanks to their 2-0 victory over West Ham at the London Stadium.
