Another day, another transfer rumour, but Bernd Leno coming to Arsenal may actually contain some truth.

The Bayer Leverkusen stopper has been linked with our club for a while, and the German keeper is reportedly one of our targets, according to the Daily Express.

The newspaper quoted Leno’s agent, Uli Ferber, who said on Leno’s future;

“Bernd is concentrating entirely on the national team, nothing else matters, there are several options for his future, which are tested without any hassle, this has not changed today.

“At the moment, Bernd is a player from Bayer Leverkusen, and this has been constant for more than seven years. As soon as there is something else to announce, we will do that.”

Then Leverkusen signed Lukas Hradecky from German Cup winners Eintracht Frankfurt, increasing speculation that the club had made this purchase to replace Leno.

Petr Cech has already been handed the Number One shirt by the club for next season, but some high profile errors have led some to believe that the club is in the market for a new gloveman.

Bernd Leno would certainly suffice, but with the World Cup on the near horizon, this story may well be a slow burner indeed. Ferber’s comments indicate that his client isn’t intending to move clubs anytime before the international football tournament commences.

That doesn’t mean that the clubs can’t make contact however.

With Leverkusen signing such a high quality keeper and Leno’s agent compelled to comment on the subject of a move and failing to rule it out, this is a move that could well happen. A fee of around 25m Euros is expected to tempt the Bundesliga side into action, but any deal would invariably mean a move away from The Emirates for David Ospina.

This deal has many variables, so keep your eyes peeled on The Arsenal Review for the latest.
