Arsenal are eyeing a move for Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to the Express.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger currently has both David Ospina and Wojciech Szcczesny competing for a starting berth, though the latter’s future is in doubt having lost his place to the former half way through the season.
Since moving to Leverkusen from Stuttgart, initially on loan in the summer of 2011, Leno has racked up one hundred and sixty-four appearances, while he has been capped thirteen times for Germany’s U21s.
The 23 year old has a £13m release clause in his contract, and has previously been linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid, who are themselves eyeing a long term replacement for Iker Casillas.
Arsenal travel to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, and can be backed at a price of 2/1 to get the win that would keep them on course for a top three finish.
