Some Arsenal fans think Leno could stay following comments on reported transfer target Brandt
Arsenal fans are beginning to find some hope that goalkeeper Bernd Leno could remain with the club following comments surrounding his former teammate Julian Brandt.
In an interview with Sport1, the 29-year-old shot-stopper admitted that he is happy to see Brandt, who Leno used to play with at Bayer Leverkusen as well as the German national team, linked with a move to the north London club, and that he would like to be reunited with the now-Borussia Dortmund playmaker.
Brandt has been rumoured with a move to Arsenal for quite some time, with German publication Bild reporting in April that the Gunners view the Dortmund midfielder as a plan B to Martin Odegaard this summer, yet supporters on social media were only focussed on Leno’s comments that he would be happy if the club signed his former teammate, indicating that the keeper could stay with the north London side.
Here’s what some Arsenal fans had to say on Twitter about Leno’s comments…
So Leno is staying. Let's go
