Voller tells goalkeeper Leno he can leave Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen have told goalkeeper Bernd Leno can leave the club, but only if the terms are right for them.

The 26-year-old, who kept 12 clean sheets in 39 appearances last season, has been linked with a move to Serie A runners-up Napoli.

Leverkusen’s sporting director Rudi Voller, is happy to allow his goalkeeper to leave the club, with new signing from Eintracht Frankfurt Lukas Hradecky ready to become first choice keeper.

“Leno can leave but only on our terms,” Voller told Bild.

“We are still in constant and open exchange with Bernd and his manager. Leno already had a concrete offer from Napoli in 2017, but we didn’t have an equivalent backup at the time.

“He had to stay and he did really well last season, but we thought Bernd’s desire to leave would resurface so and so with the arrival of Lukas Hradecky we have a high quality successor.”

Leno, who has won five caps for Germany, has missed out on a place in Joachim Low’s World Cup squad.
