Journalist Charles Watts has recently talked about Bernd Leno and his future at Arsenal this summer.
Should Arsenal sell Leno?
The journalist stated that he’s heard nothing about the German leaving Arsenal this summer and he can’t see the goalkeeper departing the Emirates.
On this topic, he said: “I can’t see Bernd Leno leaving this summer, so if he [Ramsdale] does come in, you’d imagine the two of them would be competing for the No 1 spot.
“Unless Arsenal very secretly got something agreed for Bernd Leno, they’re going to have to do something very, very quickly if Ramsdale is to come in and be the absolute guaranteed No 1. I haven’t heard anything about Leno, there’s no whispers about Leno going anywhere.”
TIF Thoughts on Leno’s future…
Leno’s current deal at Arsenal runs out in the summer of 2023 and he’s now 29, whereas Ramsdale is 23.
While Leno has been playing regularly for the club over the years, this summer might well be Arsenal’s best chance of earning a big fee from his sale. If he enters the last year of his contract, his value might just start reducing.
So if Arsenal really want to sign Ramsdale, this summer may be a good time to sell Leno. They could move him on, earn a good fee and use the money to improve in other areas of the squad.
