Bayern Munich plan move for Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno

Bayern Munich are planning a move for Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

The Sun says Arsenal will face a battle to keep hold of Leno this summer as Bayern Munich are reportedly lining him up as a replacement for Manuel Neuer.

Germany's first-choice keeper Neuer was once regarded as the best in the world, but the 33-year-old has suffered with injuries and loss of form.

Neuer's contract with Bayern is due to expire in the summer of 2021 - so the Bundesliga giants must weigh up whether to bring in a younger keeper and recoup some cash from selling their current No1.

And Gunners keeper Leno is high on Bayern's list of potential replacements.
