Arsenal provide fresh update on Bernd Leno's fitness

Bernd Leno news

Leno close to return to regular training

Arsenal have indicated that goalkeeper Bernd Leno could return to full training before the conclusion of the current campaign.

The German picked up a knee ligament sprain during the 2-1 defeat at Brighton last month and he has since been on the sidelines.

In his absence, Emiliano Martinez has been in good form between the sticks and he has kept three clean sheets from his previous four league starts.

Still, Leno will be expected to reclaim his spot when fit and the Gunners have revealed that he could return to regular training before the season end.

"Right knee. Sustained moderate ligament sprain during Brighton & Hove (a) on June 20. Progressing very well in recovery. Aiming to return to full training before the end of the season," a statement on their official website read.

Arsenal are scheduled to face Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby on Sunday evening. The Gunners have the opportunity to beat Spurs on the road for the first time since 2015.
