Arsenal Offers Leno To League Rivals In A Swap Deal To Seal Midfield Cracks

Leicester are looking for a new goalkeeper as their dependable stopper, Kasper Schmeichel, is set to join Nice. In their search for a worthy replacement, they appear to have identified Arsenal's Bernd Leno as a goalie they can rely on. 


Arsenal, as per Sport Mole, aware of Leicester's interest and considering their interest in Tielemans, is now willing to offer Leno in exchange for Tielemans. 

The agreement is satisfactory to both clubs. Both Tielemans and Leno are nearing the end of their current contracts and are unlikely to be extended.

Leno is undoubtedly surplus to requirements at Arsenal: He didn't see much action last season, and the signing of Matt Turner sealed his fate. 

To complement Partey and Xhaka, at Arsenal's midfield, Arteta needs another reliable central midfielder. Tielemans has been tried and tested in the Premier League, and if Arsenal can get him through the swap deal, he could be the real deal.
