German shot stopper Bernd Leno has been made available for sale ahead of the January transfer window after losing his place as the first choice Arsenal goalkeeper to summer signing Aaron Ramsdale. This is according to the report from Eurosport which stated that the Gunners are keen to sell the 29-year-old goalkeeper who would have one year left on his Arsenal contract next summer.
Leno has been the first choice Arsenal goalkeeper for the past few seasons but his place became threatened when the Gunners paid an initial fee of £24m to sign England national team shot stopper Ramsdale from Sheffield United who were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Petr Cech has welcomed the opportunity to wear Arsenal’s number one jersey for the 2018/19 season. The 36-year-old joined the Gunners from Chelsea during the summer of 2015 and he spent the past three seasons wearing the number 33 shirt. Speaking on the club’s official website, Cech admitted that he wanted to make the change much earlier but had to wait until Wojciech Szczesny, who previously wore the number, left the club.
He told the club’s official website: “I already wanted number one when I came but it belonged to Wojciech Szczesny at the time. Last season when he left, it was at the last possible moment so I couldn’t get it either.When they asked me if I would take it this year, of course I was happy to have the opportunity.”
