Rumors in the English media Monday night suggest that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has made a very important decision when it comes to his goalkeeping options.
The situation between the stalls, of course, has proven to be a major talking point in the red half of North London over the past few months.
This comes with those in a position of power in the Emirates who made the decision to beef up the club’s shooting block ranks during the recently closed summer transfer window.
Despite fan concerns regarding the price involved, the Gunners opted to spend a hefty £ 24 million plus bonuses to lure Aaron Ramsdale to the capital from Sheffield United.
Such movement, in turn, put immediate pressure on Bernd Leno’s shoulders.
German international Leno, Arsenal’s undisputed No. 1 in the past three seasons, endured a thoroughly disappointing campaign last time out, in which the 29-year-old received regular criticism from both fans and the media.
However, the first weeks of the new term saw Mikel Arteta defend his long-standing first option, in Premier League meetings with everyone from Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City.
Leno on the move?
The situation, however, took a considerable turn last weekend.
A meeting with Norwich City at the Emirates saw Ramsdale preferred among the spots for the hosts, and the Englishman, in turn, went on to award his boss with the Gunners’ first clean sheet, and three points, of the season. of the Premier League.
And, as described above, if the last word that circulated in the media Monday night is something to go through, then it appears that Ramsdale’s efforts on Saturday proved to be revealing.
According to Sami Mokbel of the Daily mailAfter his last showing, the ex-Blades is expected to “keep his place on the team.”
This decision by Arteta also means that Bernd Leno’s future has been thrown immediately into the air, with the hierarchy in North London ‘contemplating selling the doorman next summer’.
With Leno’s contract in the Emirates expiring in the summer of 2023, Arsenal are well aware that next summer’s window may mark his last chance to secure a decent return on his services.
As a result, although an exit was ruled out in January, Leno’s transfer before the start of the 2022/23 campaign is starting to look more and more likely.
