Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno ‘open to everything’ in the future

Speaking to the press ahead of his team’s second-leg Europa League quarterfinal clash against Slavia Prague, Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno revealed being open to any option regarding his future.

Leno came through the ranks at the Stuttgart academy and earned first-team promotion in 2011, but he never made a single senior appearance for them. He was sent on a season-long loan to Bayer Leverkusen straight away, which was turned permanent a year later. He arrived to the Emirates in the summer of 2018 as Unai Emery, the manager at the time, sought to create a new team at Arsenal. Since then, he has made a total of 109 appearances for the Premier League club and kept a clean sheet on 30 occasions. He also has eight caps for Germany under his belt, though he remains firmly behind Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer and Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the pecking order for the national team.

Leno says he’s happy at Arsenal, but with two years left on his contract, the 29-year-old is open to anything, signing a new deal with the Gunners, or leaving in search of ‘a new adventure’.
