Arsenal Confirm The Signing Of German International Bernd Leno

As reported by the Guardian, Bernd Leno is set to join the Gunners for an initial €22m.

"After seven fantastic years. another very exciting league", Leno was quoted as saying on Leverkusen's website.

Leno, 26, brings immediate competition for the starting spot and most likely means Arsenal will sell one of their two previous goalkeepers - Cech or Colombia worldwide David Ospina - though it remains unclear which one will have to give way.

Cech, 36, was the first choice 'keeper under Arsene Wenger but his performances were heavily criticised throughout the 2017/18 season.

Arsenal are also closing in on the signings of Sokratis and Lucas Torreira, with deals agreed for both players.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the north London side are close to completing the deal for their next summer signing as Unai Emery looks to stamp his authority on his new squad at The Emirates.

Here's how Twitter reacted to Arsenal's second summer signing.

With Sven Mislintat as head of recruitment, Arsenal appear to be taking this transfer window more seriously than they have previously.

"Arsenal is such a big club all over the world and in Germany Arsenal is so famous too". "We made a decision to play him although we knew, by doing so, that we had an inexperienced 18-year-old in goal for at least 10 Bundesliga matches, three matches in the Champions League and two cup matches".

They have faced competition for his signature from Italian giants Napoli, who can offer Champions League football for next season.

In the 2018-19 Europa League, he could face his former club as Arsenal's new €22 million (£19.2m/$25m) goalkeeper , and will be hopeful that he can make that his first piece of silverware at club level. "I spoke to Unai Emery and he said that he believes I'm a good goalkeeper, and that he wanted me to join".
