    German goalkeeper Bernd Leno has agreed to join us from Bayer Leverkusen.

    The highly-rated 26-year-old made more than 230 appearances for Leverkusen in more than seven seasons with the Bundesliga side.

    Spending most of his youth career at Stuttgart, Leno signed for Leverkusen in 2011 and that September became the youngest goalkeeper to feature in a Champions League match at the age of just 19 years and 193 days, during Leverkusen’s group-stage game against Chelsea.

    A Germany international, Bernd received his first senior international call-up in 2015 and has since won six caps for his country. Last year he was part of the Germany squad that won the 2017 Confederations Cup.

    Head coach Unai Emery said: “We are very pleased that Bernd Leno will be joining us. 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.”

    Bernd’s shirt number will be announced in due course.

    The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.

    Very happy with this signing, no idea why some don't rate maybe he's not became the world class keeper he seemed destined to be but still a fairly good well rounded keeper nonetheless.

    I don't think I could have survived another season with Cech in goals. The summer is going very well thus far.
