Powerful German OFFICIALLY opens door to Arsenal transfer deal – message sent!
Bernd Leno has opened the door to an Arsenal exit and admitted he feels like he was just “a pawn” in Mikel Arteta’s plan.
Leno was fully the number one stopper before the arrival of Aaron Ramsdale last summer, but since the arrival of the England International, he has had to get used to sitting on the bench on a weekly basis
Mikel Arteta is fully convinced that Ramsdale is his number one – especially after a number of impressive performances, and that has meant that Leno has been restricted to just one Premier League appearance since.
That has led to many reports in the media that he could be all set to depart the club at the end of the season, with sensational reports that Newcastle are ready to offer around £20 million to secure the big German.
Now, amid all the speculation and ahead of the home clash with Brighton, he has revealed how “bitter” he feels about it all as he suggested he could be on the move this summer.
Leno, who only has a year left on his contract, told GOAL and SPOX: “It was a setback and a bitter moment. But that’s sport, you have to accept that.
“I don’t want to say I was a pawn, but when the results aren’t right, sometimes things happen quickly in football.
“My ambition is to always play, I know what I can do. I’m not 20 anymore, where I could say: ‘I still have time’.”
Look, Ramsdale has been brilliant this season and that is why he is the clubs number one
Leno made constant mistakes which led to why the club signed a new stopper, but if he is not happy, then just leave
There are options out there for him to make and honestly, Newcastle may be a good option. They are in need of some decent signings and Leno could see the club as the ideal place to get his career back on track
BUT AS WE SAID, if he is unhappy, then leave
