Bernd Leno says his focus is on qualifying for the Champions League with Bayer Leverkusen, but he could consider a move abroad, amid reported links to Arsenal or Napoli.

Leno, 26, has long established himself as one of the Bundesliga’s top goalkeepers. He has made 225 league appearances for Bayer Leverkusen and is in contention to be called up by Germany for the World Cup this summer, although he will not be coach Joachim Low’s first choice.

On Tuesday, Bild reported that Arsenal and Napoli are interested in Leno, who joined Leverkusen from Stuttgart in 2011 and reportedly has a €25 million release clause.

Speaking to Sport Bild on Wednesday, Leno confirmed he could consider a move abroad.
