Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno spoke to Sport1 this week about his future at the Emirates amid rumours linking him with a move away from the club.

The German, signed by Unai Emery in 2018, has mostly been excellent for Arsenal. He has made a few mistakes that have cost us, but he has saved us on more than one occasion, and he is still a phenomenal goalkeeper.

Football London revealed earlier this month that the Gunners are now ready to sell Leno this summer, while The Telegraph claimed a few days ago that Edu is prepared to let him leave for as little as £15 million.

Leno has now had his say on the situation, and if his words are anything to go by, he’s going nowhere.

He said: “ I don’t want to flee here, I feel good and want to be successful again with Arsenal. Arsenal are a big club, which is extremely underestimated in Germany, there are many Arsenal fans all over the world. 

“I still have a two-year contract and hope to play in the Champions League again with Arsenal. 

“It is also clear that at some point in my career I want to do something different. So far I’ve played for two clubs. Maybe I’ll get the urge to play in another league again. Maybe in the south. But there is time, I’m still getting into the best goalkeeping age. But my focus is on Arsenal FC. ”

Arsenal shouldn’t sell Bernd Leno

Selling Leno for less than what we bought him for makes no sense whatsoever. He is still a fantastic goalkeeper and is among the best in the Premier League. His biggest problem may just be complacency.

The German knows very well that he is the undisputed number one at Arsenal. Maty Ryan is really good, but if Arteta had to pick one, it will always be Leno, and that has probably made him take things for granted.

The Gunners should bring in a quality goalkeeper to fight for the number one spot with Leno. We all know how good the German can be if he’s scared of losing his place – just look at last season when Emi Martinez was still at the helm.
