Liverpool are preparing to complete the signing of Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to the Mirror.
The Reds have been linked to a number of goalkeepers throughout the season as their two stoppers Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius failed to convince, the speculations became even more after the Champions league final where Karius made two costly errors to hand the trophy to Real Madrid.
They have been priced out of moves for Jan Oblak and Alisson Becker by their respective clubs, and they have now turned their attention to Leno.
The Leverkusen shot stopper has been tracked by Arsenal all through this summer with Napoli also looking to sign him, but Liverpool have now swooped in and have made a £25 million offer.
Leno missed out on Joachim Low’s German World Cup squad list, and will be looking to move to the Premier League to prove himself.
He has made it clear to the club that he wants to leave and is expected to move this summer if a suitable bid comes in. Liverpool are now leading the race to sign him.
