Atletico Madrid close on Bernd Leno

Spanish giants Atletico Madrid lead the chase for Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, according to Bild.

Los Colchoneros expect to stay without first choice shot-stopper Jan Oblak this summer and they have lined up the Germany international as his potential replacement.

Bernd Leno appears to have decided to leave Bay Arena this summer and it is important to note that his release clause is between €20m and €25m.

While Serie A high-flyers Napoli are also keen, latest reports suggest that Atletico have the upper hand in the race for the goalkeeper’s signature.

Leno, 26, is looking for a fresh challenge after spending last seven and a half years at Bay Arena, making 230 Bundesliga appearances.
