Newcastle and Arsenal willing to do Leno business

Newcastle United are eyeing Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

The Sun says Leno is eager to kickstart his career after losing his number one status to Aaron Ramsdale at the Emirates this season.

And manager Mikel Arteta is not going to stand in the way of his departure once a replacement back-up has been signed.

Arsenal were always planning to sell him in the summer and are now prepared to accelerate his departure following interest from struggling Newcastle.

They are prepared to let him move to St.James’ Park on loan with an obligation to sign him permanently in the summer if Newcastle avoid relegation.

But Leno, who is valued at about £10million by Arsenal, is not completely convinced about committing his long-term future to Newcastle and would prefer a temporary move with the chance to weigh up his options in the summer.
