In recent months Arsenal have been facing fatal changes. With Arsene Wenger’s retirement and former PSG head coach Unai Emery’s appointment Arsenal have been expected to have a fresh start as he seeks to put his own stamp on the team and their style of play.
Following weeks of speculation Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno at last joined Arsenal.
So now the Gunners have new goalkeeper which could put Petr Cech and David Ospina’s future on doubt.
Leno had six caps and was part of the squad that won the Confederations Cup in Russia last summer.
The German has experience playing for a very aggressive team in Bayer Leverkusen, who over the years have rivaled the likes of Borussia Dortmund in the way they seek to push up the pitch and seize possession.
Speaking after the deal for the German was completed, Emery told the Arsenal official website: "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."
Leno is the second signing of Unai Emery after Switzerland international Stephan Lichtsteiner, who joined the Gunners from Juventus.
