German international won’t be moving to London.
Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler has ruled out a summer move to Arsenal, according to talkSPORT.
The 28-year-old has been just one of a number of players linked with the club in line to replace Wojciech Szcz?sny, who has lost the confidence of Arsene Wenger. Adler, Victor Valdes and Michel Vorm have been the favourites to take over from the Polish international but Adler has distanced himself from the speculation.
“I am under contract at Hamburg, this is a fact,” he said.
“I can say that since I have arrived, I have never thought of, or considered, leaving the team.”
Alder is under contract with the Bundesliga side until 2017 after joining from Bayer Leverkusen last summer on a free transfer after spending six years with the club.
He had emerged as somewhat of a shock target for the Gunners had reportedly been on Arsene Wenger’s radar for sometime, but after this news he will have to turn his attentions elsewhere.
Adler has made 32 appearances for Hamburg this season, conceding 55 goals which currently sees the side sat in seventh place. It has been a disappointing campaign for the club after acquiring the likes of Adler and Rafael Van Der Vaart last summer.
