Not Torreira: Journalist confirms Arsenal ‘getting closer’ to signing of 26-year-old

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that the Gunners are now working on yet another deal which could follow the arrivals of Sokratis and Lucas Torreira this summer. 

After being announced as the man to replace Arsene Wenger a couple of weeks ago, Unai Emery has been eager to complete deals for his primary transfer targets before the World Cup even comes to an end.

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss has done well so far to secure the services of Stephan Lichtsteiner, with the likes of Sokratis and Lucas Torreira expected to complete transfer moves to north London as well.

However, it appears as though Emery will not end his summer business there just yet as the club continues to work on bringing in more defensive recruits.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Gunners are now in talks to agree a deal to sign goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.
