Not Torreira: Arsenal secure agreement to sign player, medical completed

The Gunners have secured their second new signing of the summer transfer window as Unai Emery continues to add more quality to his squad.

Arsenal have significantly changed their habits in the transfer market this summer, following the departure of Arsene Wenger last month.

Emery secured the addition of Stephan Lichtsteiner not too long ago and he has now added another man to the list of new signings.

Arsenal confirmed on Tuesday that a deal had been agreed for Bernd Leno to move to the Emirates stadium from Bayer Leverkusen.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper’s switch to north London is expected to cost Arsenal a fee of around £19million.

Leno has completed his medical at London Colney and will be putting pen to paper on a five-year contract at Arsenal.

The arrival of the German comes after continued reports that Sampdoria star Lucas Torreira is also closing in on an Arsenal transfer.
