Inter Milan planning January swoop for Arsenal goalie

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno

 

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno is attracting interest from Inter Milan ahead of a possible January departure.

The 29-year-old German has seen Aaron Ramsdale cement his position as Arsenal’s new No 1 with the £24million summer signing from Sheffield United keeping three clean sheets in his past four games.

Manager Mikel Arteta says he wants both goalkeepers to push each other to improve competition for places but the indications are ominous for Leno with Ramsdale in such good form.

Leno is keen to play regularly and Inter will see if they can finance a move in January.

The Italians have also been discussing a deal for Ajax keeper Andre Onana who is on Arsenal’s radar too and has rejected the offer of a new contract so will be free next summer.

Arsenal have been considering back-up goalkeeper options regardless and could be persuaded to sell Leno if a suitable offer comes in from Inter or elsewhere and Ramsdale continues his progression.

Apart from Onana, Neto of Barcelona and David Raya of Brentford have been discussed but the latter will want to continue playing regular top flight football which he is enjoying at The Community Stadium.
