Arsenal have surprisingly put a goalkeeper on their transfer wish list and they have identified Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno as the perfect choice to bring to the Emirates Stadium this summer transfer window.
According to SportBild, the gunners have won the race to sign Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno and that an announcement will be made in the coming days and this comes when the North Londoners are also rumoured to be on the verge of completing the deals of Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Lucas Torreira.
Unai Emery was appointed as the new Arsenal manager last month and it seems the new boss also wants a new young goalkeeper in his squad who will give competition to old aged Petr Cech and David Ospina who have never faced strong competition in the last three years they have played together at the Emirates Stadium.
Bernd Leno looked like he was to make a move to Napoli recently but the deal did not go through because of un known reasons leaving Arsenal among the contenders hoping to get his signature this transfer window.
Bernd Leno will cost the gunners £20million to get him and it is reported that the club is close to agreeing personal terms with the German international.
Arsenal fans will be happy about reports that new manager Unai Emery wants to sign a new goalkeeper because the have for long been urging former boss Arsene Wenger to replace Petr Cech because he is now old and can’t handle the pressure.
