Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno rubbishes reports claiming that he wants to leave the club this summer.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has rubbished reports claiming that he is seeking a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

The former Bayer Leverkusen man has been Mikel Arteta's number one since the Spaniard took over in North London, and he generally has a good standing with Arsenal fans, despite some high-profile errors.

However, recent reports have claimed that Leno could be part of a mass Arsenal clearout in the summer transfer window, but the Germany international has denied suggestions that he is unhappy in the English capital.

Speaking to Sport1, Leno said: "I don't want to flee here, I feel good and want to be successful again with Arsenal. Arsenal are a big club, which is extremely underestimated in Germany, there are many Arsenal fans all over the world.

"I still have a two-year contract and hope to play in the Champions League again with Arsenal. It is also clear that at some point in my career I want to do something different.

"So far I've played for two clubs. Maybe I'll get the urge to play in another league again. Maybe in the south. But there is time, I'm still getting to the top goalkeeping age. But my focus is on Arsenal FC."

Leno has kept 15 clean sheets in 47 appearances for the Gunners this term, and his existing Emirates Stadium deal is due to expire in the summer of 2023.
