Arsenal are favourites ahead of Liverpool to sign Germany international and Bayer Leverkuson goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to report.
The Gunners are on a shopping spree as new manager Unai Emery is revamping the side, and they have mooted a move for Leno.
Since joining Leverkuson from Stuttgart, Leno has assumed the position of an indisputable shot-stopper and his impressively consistent show-off has lured Arsenal and Liverpool to him.
The Gunners are overhauling their defense and they are looking for a long-term replacement for the out-of-form Petr Cech.
However, Arsenal may have to act fast after German tabloid Bild reported that the Reds are preparing a £25m bid for the 26-year-old goalie.
Liverpool are displeased with Loris Karius following his terrible performance in the Champions league final and they are in the market to sign a replacement for him.’
The Reds are also heavily linked with a move for Alisson Becker and Jack Butland of Stoke but Leno might be their cheapest option.
It appears that Leverkuson are preparing for life of Leno, with reports claiming they signed Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt last month as a possible replacement for transfer bound Leno.
Leno was dropped from Germany’s squad that will feature in the World Cup, which means he can complete a move soon. The report by Bild revealed that the Reds will table their bid for the player in the coming days and they will be hoping the deal will be completed before the world cup.
