‘I’m open for everything’ – Leno coy on Arsenal future

Bernd Leno has revealed he is ‘open for everything’ as he prepares to enter the final two years of his Arsenal contract.

The German has been the Gunners’ undisputed first choice between the sticks since his arrival from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018.

Leno retained that status last summer despite Emiliano Martinez flourishing during his absence through injury, with the Argentine being sold to Aston Villa as a result.

However, his future at the Emirates Stadium is less clear almost a year on, with talks over a new deal yet to begin.

And Leno is not ruling out a move away from Arsenal should the right offer come along from elsewhere.

“At this moment it’s not the time to speak about the future,” he said.

“I know that I still have two years left and I’m also 29, for a goalkeeper that is not too old.

“I’ve still some years to go. I’m very happy in the club.

“I don’t know what will come in the future. I’m open for everything: for a new adventure or to stay at Arsenal.

“But, like I said, at the moment I don’t think about my future because two years are still a long time.

“At the moment there are no conversations with the club or something else.”
