Arsenal To Replace Bernd Leno With Athletic Bilbao Keeper Unai Simon

Arsenal reportedly want a summer swoop for Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Unai Simon following Bernd Leno's poor form.

As a result of the German shot-stopper’s recent high-profile mistakes, La Razon claim that the North Londoners are keen to sign Simon.

They state that Mikel Arteta is a fan of his Spanish compatriot, who has appeared in all of Bilbao's 32 LaLiga games this term.

It has also been stated that West Ham, Borussia Dortmund and Monaco are all keeping tabs on the 23-year-old.

A move to lure Simon away from Spain could prove tricky with the player signing a new contract in August until 2025.

And Simon has stressed that he would like to end his career in Bilbao, as he said: “Since I arrived here the club’s values and philosophy have been instilled in me.
