The German has been heavily linked with a move to north London in recent weeks.

And speculation has intensified after Leno took to Instagram to drop a huge hint over a potential summer move.

The Bayer Leverkusen stopper sent fans into a frenzy by ‘liking’ a post on the social media site which named him as Arsenal’s ‘top priority’ this summer.

‘Teamberndleno’ posted the transfer rumour, which originally came from German publication, Kicker.

The outlet have claimed Leno has been in London to secure a deal recently.

The goalkeeper joined Leverkusen in 2011 and has a £22m release clause in his contract at the Bundesliga outfit.

The club have brought in Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt which could see Leno leave over the summer.

But speaking recently, Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller said: “Leno can leave but only on our terms.

“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 Lukáš Hrádecký we have a high quality successor.”

Current Arsenal No 1 Petr Cech has one year to run on his Gunners contract.
