Arsenal signed Germany international goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £22million. The 26-year-old was expected to replace veteran stopper Petr Cech as the Gunners first choice at the start of the season. Instead, the German has started the Gunners three Premier League games on the substitute’s bench.

Convinced he made the right decision

Leno is convinced that he made the right decision to join the Gunners this summer. He told Sport Bild: “I am convinced that my change was the right decision,”

“I’m not crazy. It may take a few weeks or months, but my time here will come.”

The German club seemed to indicate that they want to see Leno, who is their former goalkeeper, performing for the Gunners after his multi-million pound move to the Emirates. Alas, Cech took exception to this, citing that it showcased a lack of professionalism on Leverkusen’s behalf.

Arsenal have already been exceptionally busy in the summer transfer window thus far, adding a series of new names to their ranks as they prepare to challenge for a place in the top four once again. Whilst it’s a little sad to consider that an achievement in comparison to years gone by when they were contending for the title, new manager Unai Emery feels like the right guy to lead them back to that point.

According to the Express, Arsenal are set to renew their interest in Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who reportedly has a release clause of £22million in his contract.

Leno has often been linked with a move to the Gunners, as Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech is starting to look his age. The former Chelsea stopper produced a number of unconvincing displays last season.

The 36-year-old’s position as Arsenal number one is now looking very vulnerable, with Leno looking like a very viable target.

North London giants Arsenal are keen to make a proper statement after seeing first-team star Alexis Sanchez leave for Manchester United.

The Gunners got Henrikh Mkhitaryan in return with Armenian expected to become a valuable signing and a quality addition to the squad. Mkhitaryan suffered from lack of regular playing time at Old Trafford but his overall talent and quality were never questioned.

To make things even better, Arsenal are currently negotiating a deal to sign Borussia Dortmund star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. His possible departure is currently dominating the media space in both Germany and England so it comes as little surprise to see Leon Bailey’s link go slightly below the radar.
