Arsenal star facing uncertain future after recent axe
19 September 2021 – 21:00
Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno is facing an uncertain future at the club after being dropped from Premier League duties.
The German has been the Gunners’ first-choice keeper over the past few years, but he is no longer assured a starting spot.
Leno started the first three games of the current league season, but he has been dropped this month for Aaron Ramsdale.
The club’s summer signing has impressed manager Mikel Arteta with his energy and ability to command the box.
Ramsdale has also excelled with his long-range distribution, and he is unlikely to be dropped to the bench anytime soon.
According to football.london, Leno could be heading for the exit door next year with contract talks on hold at the moment.
Leno has less than two years remaining on his existing deal. A mid-season exit appears unlikely, but he could leave next summer.
Gunners graduate Karl Jakob Hein recently made a big impression playing for Estonia. He could end up as Ramsdale’s deputy.
