Fulham open talks to sign Alphonse Areola on loan from PSG

Sky Sports report that Premier League side Fulham have entered into talks to sign French international and PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a season-long loan.

Areola spent the 2019/20 campaign with Real Madrid, but was largely the understudy to Thibaut Courtois. PSG have signed Sergio Rico as their second choice for 2020/21 on a permanent basis, after Areola made it clear that he has no intention of remaining understudy for the new season.

The 27-year-old, who recently purchased a house in London, is also Rennes’ priority target should they sell Édouard Mendy to Chelsea.
