Leicester emerge as possible escape route for Arsenal international

Leicester City are claimed to be eyeing Arsenal’s Bernd Leno as a possible replacement for Kasper Schmeichel this summer.

The German international has fallen down the pecking order following the impressive debut season of Aaron Ramsdale last term, and following Matt Turner’s signing this summer, he could well find himself as the club’s third choice in the upcoming campaign.

Leno is believed to be available for transfer at the right price however, with Fulham having been most strongly linked, but he could now be the subject of interest of the Foxes.

Schmeichel is claimed to have agreed personal terms with Ligue 1 side Nice after asking to leave the King Power Stadium, but he isn’t expected to be allowed to leave before his replacement is found.

GFFN (via the Metro\\) claims that the Gunners Leno and Nantes’ Alban Lafont are two that they are looking at this summer, and they could swoop in ahead of Fulham.

Leno is proven at the top level, and would be a great signing for Brendan Rodgers’ side. With very few options seemingly in for the German he could well be persuaded to move to Leicestershire, although an offer from Fulham would mean very little change for him and his family as he would get to stay in London.

This has to be good news as we look to offload a player who is no longer needed in north London, and someone who we would likely lose for free in 12 months if we were to fail to find a buyer this summer.

  1. What about Wilfred Ndidi as DM , a position we have not filled adequately for some time.With him in place, Partey can be used in a more advanced role which befits his talent.

    1. If we wanted a DM that badly we would have gotten that guy from brighten before he went to Tottenham, Elnery is available so ndidi isn’t coming

  2. Ndidi is quite too expensive at the moment therefore not affordable i’d like we start contacting him pre-next summer transfer so we can lure him away after his price gets lower then we ditch xhaka to make room for him.

    1. I think that arteta is probably happy with the squad he has.e eryone begs for a DM or CM but if arteta saw that as the priority we would have already signed someone no ?! But arteta was also capable of buying Ramsdale when we had Leno. So he also knows that there is windows of opportunity. Xhaka is 30, Elneny is 30 and partey 29 and now showing worrying sifns regarding injuries. Our only DM/CM that fits the long term projects is Lokonga and Zinchenko. If we can use Leno+pepe ideally ( 240k per week combined) to lower a dral for Ndidi we may do that.
