Arsenal have set a rough valuation for Bernd Leno, as they consider offloading him if they can find a replacement.
The Mirror report that Arsenal will consider selling Bernd Leno this summer, but only providing a club meets their valuation for him and they can find a replacement number one. The Gunners have been compiling reports on potential targets in that regard.
Leno joined Arsenal for £22.5m, and the Mirror suggest he’ll be available for a similar price or slightly less if the club can find a replacement.
The Athletic previously reported that Bernd Leno’s immediate future is unclear. They claimed the player is open to a move, and Arsenal are potentially open to selling him, with no ‘great appetite’ for talks to extend his deal expiring in 2023.
As for replacements, the most strongly linked right now would be Andre Onana of Ajax. That certainly seems like one that will probably go through, but the issue is that Onana is suspended from match action until November – even following his ban reduction.
So for Arsenal to sell Leno, they’d have to sign another goalkeeper capable of filling in for the first three months of the new season.
