Pundit reckons Arsenal will make good money selling unwanted player

Kevin Campbell believes it would be a superb piece of business if Arsenal can get as much as £10m from the sale of Bernd Leno this summer.

The German goalkeeper is on his way out of the club after he lost his place as the first choice.

He could become the third choice at the club when Matt Turner begins his time at the Emirates next month.

Leno was one of the best goalkeepers in England before the 2020/2021 campaign when mistakes plagued his performances for Arsenal.

Aaron Ramsdale was signed to compete with him and the England international has now become the first choice at the Emirates.

However, the German didn’t leave last summer and hoped to win his place back.

That didn’t happen, and he must leave to save face before the next campaign begins.

Some clubs are interested and former Gunner, Campbell believes £10m is a fair price for him.

He tells Football Insider: “If they can get £10million for him, I think that is good business.

“Leno has been at Arsenal four years or so. He has had some good times and good seasons.

“If they were to get £12million for him I think they’ve done really well. I think £10million is about right for a player in his situation.

“It is time to get him off the books and move him on though. We have already signed his replacement.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Leno was one of our key players and the German remains a fine contributor to our matches when he plays.

However, he has missed his chance to remain as our number one and we need to move on from him.

Hopefully, he would get a club that can take a chance on him and give him regular playing time.

  1. Personally that’s a great deal for who ever gets him (hopefully Fulham )
    To suggest we will get good money for his talent is another kick in the bollocks towards our transfer funds .

  2. Leno was signed by the Gazidis consortium in June 2018 for a reported £22.5 million.
    He was an excellent signing and saved us from many defeats.
    When UE was sacked and MA came in, he was asked to change his proven goalkeeping record in order to play Mikel’s wish to play out from the back.
    This proved disastrous, especially as the men in front of him were also struggling to implement the new game plan.

    MA has now completely revamped his defence and signed two new keepers.

    I wish Leno every success if / when he leaves and £100,000,000 for a current German international seems yet another low transfer fee in my opinion.

  3. I may be one of a small minority who believe that Leno is superior to Ramsdale in most respects.Would be a great acquisition for around 10m.

    1. Better shot stopper IMO but command of his area and playing out from the back ramsdale is way ahead Grandad and I loved Leno when he came in and how he saved us ,like you said who ever gets him they will be getting a massive bargain

  4. 10 mil is another give away. He isnt great with the ball at his feet but he is a good goalkeeper. How anyone can say we would get a good deal at 10 mil is beyond me and why do we quote Kev Cambell, he talks toffee.

    1. The right deal and the best deal would have been to have kept Martinez and sold Leno for 25mil ish when he was valuable. We have devalued him.

  5. no professional team worth a lick would have ever intentionally devalued so many players in such a short period of time simply to coddle the fragile and tactically naïve tendencies of an amateur manager
