It is an open secret that Inter Milan need to sign a goalkeeper.
According to the football transfer rumours in British and Italian media, Inter Milan are tracking Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
The Gunners spent 25 million euros to sign the Germany international from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2018. The 29-year-old has one year left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
He is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in Germany. As a member of Germany national football team, Leno won two caps.
Simone Inzaghi wants to sign a new goalkeeper and Leno is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a firm fan of Arsenal goalkeeper and Inter could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
According to the report,”Inter Milan are monitoring the present situation of Bernd Leno at Arsenal. The Italian giants are in the market for a new shot stopper after the loss of form of Samir Handanovic during the past year. According to Tuttosport, the Nerazzurri are assessing Leno as a possible winter or summer transfer. Handanovic will be out of contract at the end of this season, which would free up a spot in the Inter squad. Leno, who has performed outstandingly for most of his time at Arsenal, faces new competition in the form of summer signing Aaron Ramsdale.”
