Arsenal Have Finally Found The Back Up Goalkeeper They've Been Wishing For

Mikel Arteta wants to get rid of Benard Leno, who appears to have lost his first-team goalkeeping berth to Aaron Ramsdale. The summer signing has fully cemented his position in the starting lineup. He has been instrumental for The Gunners since being given an opportunity by Mikel Arteta and has already helped the club record ten clean sheets in the English Premier League. According to different sources, Bernard Leno is keen on leaving the London-based club during the winter transfer window. It is believed that The gunners and Germany goalkeeper are considering joining Newcastle United on a permanent deal because he wants to get more playing time, something which Mikel Arteta has failed to offer him this season.

Mikel Arteta has already found the best replacement for Bernard Leno. According to reports published by London football Turner, the new goalie for the Revolution has decided to join Arsenal on a five-year contract. The veteran goalkeeper is interested in taking over for Leno. Arsenal supporters have been waiting for confirmation of the initial agreement for a long time, and it appears that it has finally been completed. Gunners goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo is 20 years old. He might replace Leno as a backup option for Arteta on the bench if Leno cannot continue his career in the Premier League.

But The London-based club would be left with a void in the goalkeeper position, so if they could sign Turner, it would be the best possible outcome for the north London club. Arsenal is also in advanced talks with other clubs, including Aston Villa, over the signing of midfielder Douglas Luiz, who now plays for the club. After being dealt a blow in their pursuit of Juventus star Arthur Melo, the Gunners have been linked with a surprise January signing for the Brazilian.
