Bayern Munich are considering a move for Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to The Sun.
Leno is a candidate to replace Manuel Neuer as Bayern Munich’s first-choice goalkeeper. Neuer has struggled with his form this season and the Bundesliga champions are considering replacing him.
Bayern Munich might swoop for the goalkeeper who many believe is Neuer’s successor in the Germany national team. Leno will compete with Marc-Andre Ter Stegen when Germany decide to replace Neuer.
Leno has been in good form for Arsenal this season despite the club’s struggles. In yesterday’s defeat at Leicester City, Leno kept Arsenal in the game with some impressive saves.
The 27-year-old has only kept two clean sheets this season but this is mainly down to a leaky defence. His individual performances have been rare positives for the North London side. Ironically, Leno could team up with Arsene Wenger at The Allianz Arena if the ex-Arsenal boss gets the job.
Leno has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent players since he broke into the team. He seems to be getting better with every Premier League match he plays.
With problems elsewhere, Arsenal cannot afford to lose their goalkeeper now. They need to start building a team around the best players and Leno should be a part of the furniture for the long-term future.
