The 29-year-old is only the second choice in the Emirates Stadium, after the English Nationalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale had come from Sheffield United in the summer. Ramsdale was quickly transported by Mikel Arteta to the new number one of the association - now the missions of the German at best are limited to sporadic cup plays.
Leno made arteta clear that he would like to change to be the number one elsewhere. However, the Gunners hesitate because they react to a Leno disposal for their part and act on the transfer market.
"Newcastle are making headway": Source reveals exciting update on potential third Howe signing
'Newcastle making headway' with deal for £30m rising starThe 19-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Newcastle and Jones is confident that Eddie Howe's side are on the right track to sign him.
90min has learned that Newcastle has already led conversations about a lending, which would follow a permanent obligation afterwards - if the Magpies should secure the league.
Newcastle currently has Martin Dubravka as a number one, but the Slovake fell out for a long time this season and it is believed that Eddie Howe wants to have a new goalkeeper. Now for the Magpies, the opportunity has arisen to get a high-profile number one like Leno, which is why they are very interested in making the deal.
Leno, which was changed in 2018 from Bayer Leverkusen to Arsenal, has another contract in Nordlondon until 2023.
