Arsenal target Bernd Leno: I've always said I'd like to play abroad

Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno cannot rule out a move to Arsenal.

Leno has been linked with the Gunners this week, where he has been mentioned as a successor for Petr Cech.

He told BILD: "I've said many times before that I would be attracted to work abroad. But I'm not really into that at the moment.

"Now I want to go back to the Champions League with Leverkusen."

Leno's deal carries a €25m buyout clause.

"Two years ago, there was this speculation before. At that time I was thinking too much about it myself. Constantly there were questions about this topic. Today, with two years more experience, I am much more relaxed," he added.
