Arsenal are being linked with a big-money move for Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas – with current shot-stopped Bernd Leno taking an absolute pounding from Gooners for FaceTiming allegedly FaceTiming a member of AFTV.
German goalie Leno is currently the North London club’s No.1 choice between the sticks, having wrestled his way into the team in place of Petr Cech, but he was left looking helpless on Saturday after conceding five goals against Liverpool at Anfield.
Rumours on social media have suggested the 26-year-old decided to get in touch with Arsenal Fan TV regular Mr. DT in order to try and placate supporters in the wake of their Merseyside thrashing.
DT posted a picture of himself alongside Leno as the comments intensified over the last few days but if Leno did indeed do this then it looks like he’s made a pretty poor error in judgement:
Bin Leno. We binned szczesny for far less https://t.co/MYXHqMmqQY

Binning Leno and replacing him with Navas because the former facetimed the Arsenal Fan TV fella is exactly the kinda cutthroat thing I want from Emery. All for it.

Keylor Navas for €16m is obviously a very good deal. We need to make smart deals now. So from that perspective I like it.
There's a great keeper in Leno, but maybe he needs time to grow? Also, if you facetime with DT you deserve this. #afc

DT – @Bernd_Leno facetime is a disgrace if true. May be Leno has no idea that the same put up a manager out banner after 4-0 win. Disgraceful act.

Leno spoke to DT on FaceTime… was conceding 5 goals not enough 🤦♂️

Apparently, our friend Mr DT 'facetimes' Leno after games in order to represent the fanbase, give him encouragement and so on. Appears to be true as far as I can work out.

Despite playing a part in Real Madrid’s three consecutive Champions League triumphs, Navas has lost his spot at the Bernabeu to Thibaut Courtois, but is still undoubtedly a top-quality player.
What do you think of the situation, and should Leno be facing stick for his actions?
