The January transfer window is upon us and rumours are running rampant, especially about teams in disarray. Currently, there’s no team in more of a shamble than Arsenal. The club has just hired their third different manager of the season, with Mikel Arteta now overseeing things for the foreseeable future.
For him to make progress at the club and implement his ideas, he must determine which players want to play for him. That means there’ll be some new arrivals, but also several departures. As with every rebuild, there will be some painful losses with some marquee names switching over to rivals.
4. Bernd Leno to Manchester United
Alongside Aubameyang, Bernd Leno has been Arsenal’s only saving grace this season. The German keeper has made more saves this season than any other keeper in the league. That shows how much Arsenal have left him exposed and subsequently needed him.
He has now proved himself to be one of the best keepers in the league and his performances have not gone unnoticed. At Manchester United, a certain former world’s best has been making mistake after mistake. Manchester United keeper David de Gea has increasingly become a liability recently, with the higher-ups now looking to cash in on him and replace him. Bernd Leno would be the ideal candidate to step in as he wouldn’t need any time to acclimatise to the physicality of the Premier League.
