Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arsenal are one of the two Premier League clubs chasing Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to Tribal Football.
Cech’s future has come under the spotlight in recent days following his howler in the game against Chelsea.
Reports claimed Wenger was looking for a new number one and was eyeing a move for Manchester City’s Joe Hart. Although Wenger dismissed that report, insisting he has “three world class goalkeepers” at his disposal, that hasn’t stopped the rumors and we are still being linked with other goalkeepers.
This time it’s Leno who has established himself as one of Bundesliga top goalkeepers since joining Bayer in 2011.
According to the Daily Star, Wenger is keeping an eye on the 24-year-old goalkeeper.
Liverpool are the other club interested in signing the Germany international. Klopp knows Leno so well and has earmarked his compatriot as his top target to replace Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius who are struggling.
I don’t know what to make of this constant rumors linking us with a goalkeeper but I think it’s a move worth looking at.
Arsenal may look strong in the goalkeeping department at the moment but when you consider Cech’s age and the probability that Ospina may push for an exit this summer so he can play more regularly, you would see that there is every reason for the club to be keeping an eye on potential arrivals.
Leno signed a new four-year contract with Bayer last summer and will not come cheap.
