Representatives from the London club have been monitoring Leno recently, and have been impressed by his abilities.

And Arsenal can sign Leno if they match the shot-stopper’s £13million buy-out clause.

The 23-year-old has already been tipped to replace Germany number-one Manuel Neuer in the future following his debut for the club when he was just 19 years of age.

Gunners summer signing David Ospina became the club’s first-choice goalkeeper after Wojciech Szczesny fell down the pecking order.

Manager Arsene Wenger is keen on a world class keeper like Chelsea’s Petr Cech, however the Blues are unwilling to sell their out-of-favour star to a rival club.
