£100,000-a-week Arsenal ace is a target for reigning league champions - report
Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno is a target for Inter Milan, according to Tuttosport.
The 29-year-old’s contract at the Emirates Stadium expires next summer.
And Leno’s future at Arsenal has appeared uncertain for a while now.
The Athletic reported in May last year that some Gunners staff members felt the keeper might’ve been looking to leave in the summer.
Leno himself denied those claims on Sky Sports that same month, saying: “I am still happy at Arsenal.”
However, speculation over the Germany international’s future in north London continued over the summer.
TalkSPORT claimed in July that the Gunners would accept any offers which match the £22.5million they paid for Leno in 2018.
Obviously Leno hasn’t left and, with the transfer window now shut, wouldn’t get the chance to move clubs until next year.
However, the £100,000-a-week stopper is now into the last 12 months of his contract, so his future is bound to remain in question.
And according to Tuttosport, Inter are after a new goalkeeper, and could potentially be looking at players with expiring contracts.
The outlet names Arsenal’s Leno and Ajax’s Andre Onana as two potential options for the reigning Serie A champions.
