According to The Sun, Bayern Munich are interested in signing Bernd Leno from Arsenal.

It has been reported that Bayern are looking at Leno as a replacement for their first-choice goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

The report in the British tabloid has claimed that the 27-year-old goalkeeper’s experience in the Premier League has “increased his reputation”, and that German giants Bayern are looking at him due to injuries and disappointing form of Neuer.

The Sun has suggested that Leno is not the first-choice goalkeeper to replace Neuer; it is Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

 

Leaving Arsenal

Arsenal are a massive club, but the Gunners are not competing for major honours at the moment.

Bayern are European giants, and the chance to play week in and week out for the Bundesliga outfit, win domestic titles and compete in the Champions League could prove to be to too tempting for the former Bayer Leverkusen star.

Leno joined Arsenal from German club Bayer in the summer of 2018.
