Mikel Arteta instructs Arsenal transfer chiefs to sign Bernd Leno replacement

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has reportedly demanded the signing of Spain international goalkeeper Unai Simon as a long term replacement for Bernd Leno. Leno has made several high-profile errors this season, the latest of which came in Friday's 1-0 loss at home to Everton where he scored an own goal. According to La Razon, Arteta has identified Athletic Bilbao stopper Simon as a potential signing this summer. The Spaniard has 'sentenced' Leno and has asked club chiefs to pursue the La Liga star. The 23-year-old signed a new five-year contract last August to keep him in Bilbao until 2025. There is no release clause in Simon's contract. Borussia Dortmund, West Ham and Monaco also named clubs interested in signing the goalkeeper.
