Arsenal Signs Leverkusen Goalkeeper Bernd Leno Reportedly for €22 million (£19.3 million)

Bayer Leverksen announced on Tuesday that goalkeeper Bernd Leno has completed a move to Arsenal.

The Gunners reportedly agreed a fee of €22 million (£19.3 million) for the 26-year-old, according to David Ornstein at BBC Sport.

Manager Unai Emery told the club’s official website:

“We are very pleased that Bernd Leno will be joining us. Bernd is a goalkeeper of high quality and experience. He has been a top performer and regular number one goalkeeper with Leverkusen in the Bundesliga for the past seven years. We are all excited that Bernd has chosen Arsenal football club and look forward to start working with him in pre-season.”

The 26-year-old made more than 230 appearances for Leverkusen in more than seven seasons with the Bundesliga side.

Spending most of his youth career at Stuttgart, Leno signed for Leverkusen in 2011 and that September became the youngest goalkeeper to feature in a Champions League match at the age of just 19 years and 193 days, during Leverkusen’s group-stage game against Chelsea.

A Germany international, Bernd received his first senior international call-up in 2015 and has since won six caps for his country. Last year he was part of the Germany squad that won the 2017 Confederations Cup.
