Ex-Arsenal ace urges Bundesliga star to reject Gunners

Marc Andre ter StegenFormer Arsenal icon Jens Lehmann has told Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to reject interest from the Premier League leaders in favour of a move to Barcelona.

The German stopper has been heavily linked with a switch away from the Bundesliga in recent times, and is thought to be a January target for the London club.

However, Barca are also keen on the 21-year-old, who has emerged as a genuine alternative to Liverpool’s Pepe Reina, as they search for a replacement for the soon to be out-of-contract Victor Valdes.

Arsene Wenger is believed to be looking into the possibility of replacing his current number one Wojciech Szczesny, and is thought to see Ter Stegen as player with huge potential.

But, former Arsenal keeper Lehmann has urged his compatriot to look past English interest and instead pursue a transfer to Barca.

“Ter Stegen would be a great goalie for Barca,” Lehmann told The Express.

“He’d adapt well to the Spanish league, he plays well with both feet and Barca’s style of play would suit him down to the ground.

“I see him better off there than in the Premier League.”
