Arsenal close in on Bernd Leno and Lucas Torreira £48m double signing

Bernd Leno

And Bayer Leverkusen star Leno has been identified as their long-term solution in goal.

Our new head coach has already completed the signing of Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus but he's expected to make several further additions as he looks to revamp the squad left behind by Arsene Wenger this summer.

Leno, who was named in Joachim Loew's provisional World Cup squad but failed to make the final cut for Russian Federation, kept 10 clean sheets in the Bundesliga last season and is seen as a long-term replacement for Petr Cech, who turned 36 last month.

Talks have been ongoing for some time, but it appears a switch to north London from Germany is imminent.

The bold promise highlights a new swagger that had been missing from the host nation's team for much of the past year. Russia's veteran goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev said he would rather focus on winning than any particular opposing player.

SportBILD in Germany claims 26-year-old Leno will be presented to the media by Arsenal on Tuesday.

It's understood Arsenal have wrapped up a deal for Leno for a fee of around £22million, with Unai Emery determined to bring in competition for Petr Cech.

Leno has spent the past seven seasons at Leverkusen, making 233 appearances for the Bundesliga club.

His impending arrival potentially casts doubt over the future of Cech, who has only one year remaining on the contract he signed when he moved from Chelsea in 2015.
