Arsenal agree deal to sign Lucas Torreira

Yacine Adli

Arsenal will sign Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno soon, with an announcement expected.

That could suit Arsenal, given that the Gunners are understood to have a more restricted transfer budget this summer following their lack of Champions League football.

Unai Emery has been in the market for a new number one as Petr Cech is now 36 and coming towards the end of his illustrious career and it looks like Leno is set to be the Czech international's long-term successor.

The rumour - reposted by a fan account called "teamberndleno" - came from another German publication, Kicker, who suggested Leno was in London.

Returning director Patty Jenkins co-wrote the script with Geoff Johns (who contributed to the original film's story). Charles Roven , Deborah Snyder , Zack Snyder , Patty Jenkins , Stephen Jones and Gal Gadot are producing the film.

Leno - who did not make the final cut for Germany's World Cup squad - has made 304 appearances for Leverkusen and kept over 100 clean sheets.

The 22-year-old did have a £21.9m (€25m) release clause in his contract, which has another four years to run, but Arsenal offered the extra €5m to beat off competition from Napoli.

It is believed that Leverkusen are willing to accept less than Leno's £24.6million release clause, but want around £19.4million plus bonuses for the six-time Germany global.

Arsenal have continued their attempt to add greater steel through the spine of the squad by holding talks over the potential signing of Uruguay and Sampdoria holding midfielder Lucas Torreira.
