Arsenal are set to announce the signing of goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.
According to German publication Sport Bild, Arsenal are on the verge of completing the signing of Leno.
The report claims that Leno is set to cost between £18-20m after he made it clear to Leverkusen that he wanted to leave the club.
Arsenal were keen to replace Petr Cech this summer after a season of mishaps from the former Chelsea star.
Leno is now set to join and take over the number one shirt for Unai Emery next season at The Emirates.
The 26-year-old will be Arsenal’s second signing of the summer, joining Stephan Lichtsteiner.
Arsenal are also closing in on the signings of Sokratis and Lucas Torreira, with deals agreed for both players.
Despite narrowly missing out on a place in Germany’s squad for the World Cup this summer, Leno has been capped six times for his country.
