According to The Sun, Arsenal’s primary goalkeeper target is Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno, and it is said that the Germany international would be interested in a move to the Emirates.
The Gunners have had other targets for the No.1 position, with Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Stoke City’s Jack Butland among others, but are now focusing on signing Leno ahead of next season.
Arsenal are set to address their defensive shortcomings following a disastrous season and are set to sign some players to solve the problem area.
Those positions include the defensive midfield, central defence and goalkeeping. The North Londoners have already lined up targets for each of the positions, but are set to prioritise a goalkeeper in the next few weeks.
Arsenal’s disastrous season was defined by the failings in their defence, which conceded 69 goals in all competitions, something that had never happened before during Arsene Wenger.
While many defenders were to blame for the situation, goalkeepers Petr Cech had his fair share of shortcomings as well.
