Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno is in danger of being ‘ousted’ from the Germany squad if his situation at the Emirates doesn’t improve.

That’s according to Fussball.News, who say a change of club is ‘conceivable’ for the current Arsenal number two.

Leno has found himself sat on the bench for Arsenal of late, with Mikel Arteta preferring Aaron Ramsdale as his number one instead.

At first, it was believed this was only a temporary measure, with Leno reportedly promised he could return for the clash with Tottenham.

That never happened, with the German sitting on the bench for that game and the subsequent draw with Brighton.

It’s something he’s publicly admitted he’s not all that happy about, even hinting that he could be on the move come January as a result.

That’s something Fussball.News back up, stating that he faces being ‘ousted’ as Germany’s third-choice goalkeeper by Kevin Trapp.

Leno has never been able to establish himself ahead of either Manuel Neuer or Marc Andre Ter Stegen, so he has regularly filled the third goalkeeper spot for the German national team.

However, without regular playing time for Arsenal, that would leave Hansi Flick with a decision to make, particularly as Kevin Trapp is starring for Eintracht Frankfurt and pushing to be a part of his squad.

Germany boss Flick applies a ‘performance principle’ to his squad, meaning players are picked on their performances at club level first and foremost.

Leno, therefore ‘desperately needs’ to be playing regularly, something that doesn’t appear to be on offer at Arsenal.

A move is therefore ‘conceivable’ for him come the January transfer window; otherwise, he could find himself out of the international setup altogether.
