Arsenal to ‘make Bernd Leno available for transfer in January window’ after losing first-team place to Aaron Ramsdale

ARSENAL are willing to make Bernd Leno available for a transfer away from the club in January, reports say.

The German has less than a year left on his current deal and he has already had his No1 jersey taken off him by summer signing Aaron Ramsdale.

According to Eurosport, the Gunners are willing to let Leno go in January to generate some cash – or they risk losing him on a free at the end of the season.

The Gunners already have the 29-year-old's replacement amongst their ranks.

Summer signing Aaron Ramsdale, 23, has already become Arsenal's starting goalkeeper, taking the No1 spot quicker than expected.

A return to his home country of Germany appears to be his likely destination, according to the report.

But it is unclear at this point which Bundesliga team will be interested in taking the German international.

Former Tottenham and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson believes Leno isn't in the right place mentally.

Speaking to Football Insider, he said: "He [Leno] will get angry because his mental state is not right. His head is not in the right place.

"It is difficult as a goalkeeper when you are in and out of the side. Goalkeepers like to know if they are number one or number two.

"When there is a pecking order and you are told where you are in the pecking order you can accept it. You do not want to be fighting for your place every week.

“I cannot understand the signing of Ramsdale. He’s not any better than Leno."
