How Mitrovic, Solanke and Johnson could make it to the Premier League in the future.
Leno was Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper between 2018 and 2021, but he soon lost his first-team place after Aaron Ramsdale arrived last summer.
The German has made four Premier League appearances in all of the 2021-22 campaign. He participated in the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup four times.
Marek Rodak and Paulo Gazzaniga shared goalkeeping responsibilities for Marco Silva’s side last season.
Leno will be Fulham’s fourth first team signing of the summer following the arrivals of Joao Palinha, Andreas Pereira and Kevin Mbabu. They brought in Salomon from Shakhtar Donetsk Manor on a temporary deal.
