Fulham & Rennes vying for PSG keeper Alphonse Areola

Fulham are working on a deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a season-long loan.

The 27-year-old spent last season on loan at Real Madrid as part of a deal that saw Keylor Navas join PSG.

With PSG now adding Sergio Rico to their goalkeeping ranks, another move beckons for three-time French international Areola.

According to Sky Sports, Fulham are offering Areola the chance to play in the Premier League this season.

The London club face competition from Rennes, whose goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is close to joining Chelsea.

Although he mainly played backup to Thibaut Courtois, Areola made nine appearances for Real Madrid last season.

Areola would be Fulham’s third summer recruit after they signed both Mario Lemina (loan) and Harrison Reed (permanent) from Southampton.

In July, Areola hinted at a move to England after his wife confirmed they had bought a property in London.
