Bayer Leverkusen determined to fight off Arsenal interest for Bernd Leno

Bayer Leverkusen management are calm over Arsenal's interest in Bernd Leno.

It's emerged this week that Leno is being scouted by Arsenal this season as manager Arsene Wenger fast loses confidences in his keeper stocks.

However, Bayer are confident they hold all the cards, with Leno tied to the Bundesliga giants until 2019.

Should Arsenal firm up their interest, Bayer sources insist the 22 year-old will not leave for less than €20 million.

Leno, however, admitted at the start of the season: "The foreign option is certainly appealing. A new language, a new culture - that I could definitely even imagine."
