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.” .......Read more here.....

At this moment in time, Petr Cech is still considered to be Arsenal’s number one man despite the fact that the club invested a lot of money in Bernd Leno over the summer. We’ve seen two big names competing for one spot at a major European team before, so that part of the equation probably shouldn’t feel all too unusual – but just because we ‘can’ have the debate, doesn’t mean that we should have to. .......Read more here.....

Friday saw the Italian transfer window shut and saw Arsenal players leave for Serie A clubs. Joel Campbell joined Frosinone, youngster Stephy Mavididi signed for Juventus and backup goalkeeper David Ospina joined Napoli on loan.
Out of the trio, only Ospina has featured in the Gunners first-team in recent seasons. A move was almost inevitable for the Colombian number one after falling down the goalkeeping pecking order at Arsenal due to the arrival of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
Cech and Leno first choice goalkeepers

One of the Gunners problem areas in recent seasons has been in goal. Petr Cech had previously been one of the best goalkeepers in the world. However, since joining Arsenal Cech has regressed as he has grown older.
Some of the world’s best goalkeepers of bygone days have played well into their thirties or even forties in some cases. However, at 36 years old, the former Chelsea stopper seems to be making more mistakes as the seasons go on.
Cech now has a potential replacement at the club

As seen on Twitter, Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech took a shot at the Bayer Leverkusen English Twitter account for a joke they made in regards to Bernd Leno. 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. .......Read more here.....

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are considering re-signing Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer, as current Blues number one Thibaut Courtois looks set for a move to Real Madrid.
The move would seem a strange one, but Cech was only ousted from the Chelsea team due to Courtois being such a promising and highly-rated player.
Cech is a Chelsea hero
The veteran goalkeeper is a true Chelsea hero, having spent 11 years with the Blues before making a move across the capital to join Arsenal in 2015. While he has endured mixed fortunes in north London, Cech enjoyed an incredible career at Stamford Bridge. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen have all but confirmed that highly rated goalkeeper Bernd Leno will be leaving the club for greener pastures in the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old has been one of the leading shot-stoppers in the Germany’s top flight for quite some time now, making between 32 and 34 appearances in each of the last six Bundesliga campaigns.
However, Leno appears to have decided to leave the club this summer, which led to Bayer Leverkusen signing Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt. .......Read more here.....
