Newcastle keen to sign Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno after Henderson deal falls through
Newcastle is interested in signing Bernd Leno from Arsenal according to a report from 90min. Leno is looking to leave the Emirates this year. He has been a brilliant backup for Aaron Ramsdale this season. Nevertheless, he has failed to make a big enough impression on Arteta to warrant first-team football.
Goodbyes already said
Reports are claiming that the Arsenal keeper has already said his goodbyes around the Emirates. The German was a prime target for Fulham. But, now Newcastle has emerged as a potential candidate for the signature of the German.
The Magpies wanted to sign the 29-year-old during the summer transfer window. However, priority was given to other targets arriving at the club.

Newcastle determined for Leno’s sign
Leno will be looking to move to a team where he is set to be the number one choice. Otherwise one would imagine he’d stay at Arsenal.
Newcastle is on the market to sign a new keeper in this window. And if Leno is provided with the assurance of match minutes, he would surely look to join the Magpies.
A good backup for Arsenal
Leno is an amazing goalkeeper. While Arsenal is willing to let him go, they would surely be happy to keep him as a cover for Ramsdale. But obviously, they’ll be aware that he’ll be looking for match minutes.
Leno has rarely let Arsenal down and can be a magnificent signing for Newcastle.
Leno joined the gunners in 2018 following a £19 million move from Bayer Leverkusen. Since then he has had some fantastic performances. Most notably, playing a crucial part in the 2-0 victory over Newcastle in his first-ever FA Cup match with the Gunners.
