Arsenal Transfer News: Leicester City Wants Bernd Leno


Arsenal Transfer News: Bernd Leno is reportedly being considered by Leicester City to replace Kasper Schmeichel, who could leave the Premier League club to join OGC Nice

Arsenal Transfer News: GFFN says that Leicester City might consider Bernd Leno as a replacement for Kasper Schmeichel. The captain of the Foxes could leave the Premier League team after making a deal to join OGC Nice in the Ligue.

In the last few days, Leicester City has been talked about on social media because they are the only team in Europe’s top seven leagues that hasn’t made a single signing this summer.

That could change if they get the German goalkeeper Bernd Leno from their Premier League rivals, Arsenal. Leno is on the market.

Leicester City might not have thought it was important to get a new goalkeeper this summer. But rumors about Kasper Schmeichel’s impending departure mean that the position needs to be strengthened. The veteran Danish player has reached an agreement with Ligue 1 team Nice. Leicester is ready to let him go.

Arsenal Transfer News: What’s the matter?

If Schmeichel left, there would be a hole in the goalkeeper position, and Brendan Rodgers would want to fill it with a good player.

Even though most goalkeepers on the market would cost a lot, there aren’t many options that could be affordable. Alban Lafont of Nantes and Leno are two names that are being considered.

Reports say that Fulham is getting closer to signing Leno after having talks with him for most of the month of July. The Cottagers and Arsenal haven’t agreed on a fee yet. Reports say that Arsenal wants something close to £15 million.

Arsenal also turned down an offer worth £10 million with add-ons because they didn’t want to sell the German player for less than he was worth.

Leno is said to have made a personal deal with Fulham because he wants to keep living in London for the foreseeable future.

Where will Leno move to?

But Leicester City’s interest could make him change his mind, given that the Premier League club is good overall and has done well in the past. The Foxes are much more stable than Fulham. But a lot will depend on what contract offer they accept and what fee they agree to pay Arsenal.

Leno wants to leave Arsenal because he wants to play football more often. After Aaron Ramsdale came to the team last summer, he was no longer the first choice and could only play here and there.

He wants to be on the German team for the World Cup. So he needs to play a lot. Fulham would be a good choice, but if Leicester is serious about wanting him, he might also think about them.
