Arsenal will confirm the €25 million signing of Bernd Leno tomorrow, according to reports in Germany.
This has been a strange summer for Arsenal so far as the Gunners get accustomed to life after Arsene Wenger.
In recent years, the Gunners have been linked with any number of players but few were actually realistic targets thanks to the club’s previous transfer policy.
Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen. Not done but set to be decided today & expected 26-year-old will join #AFC – unclear which current GK would make way. Torreira pursuit ongoing – optimism but not done & #WorldCup delays it

There was a last-minute panicked search almost every summer but it seems as if that is a thing of the past with a swifter, more efficient strategy this year.
This story moves along from that with reports in Germany suggesting that the Gunners will confirm the signing of Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper will reportedly cost the Gunners around €25 million.
If these reports are true then it will be great news for Arsenal. The Gunners have needed an upgrade between the sticks for a number of years and while Bernd Leno’s performances have somewhat dropped in the Bundesliga of late, perhaps a change of scenery will help him.
