Benfica 'are reluctant to meet Arsenal's £8.5million valuation of Bernd Leno'

Bernd Leno of Arsenal at London Colney on May 07, 2022 in London, England.

Benfica are interested in signing Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno this summer but are hesitant to meet the Gunners' valuation of £8.5million.


Leno is set to leave Arsenal this summer after he lost his place in the side to Aaron Ramsdale.

Arsenal have already struck a deal to bring in New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner in July.

Leno made just four Premier League appearances this season while he featured only eight times across all competitions.

The 30-year-old is eager to get back into the Germany squad ahead of the World Cup but he hasn't been called up by his country since November last year.

Leno joined Arsenal from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018 for £22.5million and has played 125 times for the club in total. 

According to The Sun, a host of other players could also leave Arsenal.

Matteo Guendouzi and Konstantinos Mavropanos have already secured permanent switches to Marseille and Stuttgart respectively.

Hector Bellerin, Pablo Mari, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Lucas Torreira could also depart permanently having all been out on loan this season.
