The German was recently dropped for new signing Aaron Ramsdale, who helped the Gunners to their first win of the Premier League season on Saturday.

Leno had been in goal for the first three top-flight matches, all of which were defeats as Arsenal shipped nine goals in total.

Ramsdale's league bow, having signed for an initial £24 million from Sheffield United during the summer transfer window, was a 1-0 home victory over Norwich City as he put in an assured performance following his debut clean sheet at West Bromwich Albion in the Carabao Cup.

Now Arteta has made up his mind regarding Leno's future, with the new arrival set to retain the gloves.

The Daily Mail says Ramsdale was signed with the expectation that he would be the club's No.1 by the end of the campaign.

This would likely see offers come in for Leno, who joined for £19.3 million from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018.
