Arsenal sign goal-stopper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen

The German has agreed a long-term deal and becomes Unai Emery’s second signing after Stephan Lichtsteiner joined on a free from Juventus.

Leno, 26, has been Leverkusen’s number-one keeper for the last 7 seasons.

He said: “I enjoyed the time in Leverkusen from the first to the last day.

“After a fantastic journey, I will now continue my journey in another very exciting league.”

Emery added: “Bernd is a goalkeeper of high quality and experience. He has been a top performer and regular number one goalkeeper with Leverkusen in the Bundesliga for the past seven years.

“We are all excited that Bernd has chosen Arsenal Football Club and look forward to start working with him in pre-season.”

On the other hand, Jack Wilshere has confirmed he will be leaving Arsenal after 17 years at the club.
