Bayer Leverkusen confirms interest in Stuttgart keeper

Leverkusen’s first-choice Rene Adler is set to be out for several months with a knee injury.

Adler’s replacement Fabian Giefer sustained a concussion towards the end of the 2-0 defeat to Mainz at the weekend.

Leverkusen are now looking to bring in Leno on a short-term deal.

“We are looking at Leno,” Holzhauser told Sky Deutschland. “Whether we bring him in depends also on Stuttgart.”
