Arsenal Transfer News: Newcastle United is interested in signing Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno temporarily, with a loan deal being considered.
Newcastle United, according to 90min, has indicated an interest in signing Bernd Leno. It is said that the Magpies are aware of the goalkeeper’s fragile condition at Arsenal. They are aiming to sign him during the current January transfer window. Leno himself is said to be interested in making an early getaway. St. James Park in London is being mentioned as a possible destination.
When it comes to a prospective loan agreement with Arsenal, Newcastle United has conducted discussions with the Gunners, with the club having an obligation to purchase if they manage to stay in the Premier League.
Leno has had a difficult start to his Arsenal career, slipping behind Aaron Ramsdale in the team’s pecking order. He has made just three appearances in the Premier League thus far this season.
When it comes to getting more playing time, the German is disappointed as he attempts to take the next step in his career. In contrast, Arsenal is already prepared for life without the former Bayer Leverkusen star. They have identified Matt Turner of the New England Revolution as a potential replacement.
The American international has been identified as an excellent backup goalkeeper. The player himself is adamant about joining Arsenal during the current January transfer window.
According to the same source, Newcastle United’s interest in signing Bernd Leno is motivated by manager Eddie Howe’s desire to find a reliable replacement for first-choice goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. Meanwhile, Freddie Woodman looks to have no future at the club.
Bernd Leno, as a result, might prove to be an outstanding investment in the long run. He has played 100 games in the Premier League and 233 games in the Bundesliga.
His considerable experience at the top level of football might be beneficial as Newcastle prepares to embark on a new chapter under the ownership of Saudi Arabia.
The Magpies have already bolstered their defence with the addition of Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid to their ranks. Newcastle United’s recruitment of Leno might be another step in the right way. However, it remains to be seen if Arsenal will let the 29-year-old leave the club in the January transfer window.
According to the article, the Gunners are concerned about the absence of a dependable substitute for Ramsdale’s services.
As a result, they are unlikely to sell Leno before the conclusion of the season. Particularly given the fact that the goalkeeper is under contract until 2023 with them. As a result, Arsenal’s rumoured pursuit of Matt Turner this week might have an impact on the German’s probable transfer to Newcastle United this summer.
