Arsenal manager Unai Emery "excited" by arrival of goalkeeper Bernd Leno

Isaac Mcdaniel | 19 June, 2018, 23:17

'We are very pleased that Bernd Leno will be joining us, ' the Spaniard said. We wish you all the best in this next phase of your career!'

According to the Telegraph however, the newly appointed Spanish boss is close to finalising a £48 million double deal to take Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira.

"We are all excited that Bernd has chosen Arsenal Football Club and look forward to start working with him in pre-season".

Talks have been ongoing for several weeks, and with the formalities complete Leno will now swap Germany for England. The former Chelsea shot-stopper has one year remaining on the one-year contract he signed when he joined from the Blues in 2015.

Second Kansas Police Officer Dies After Inmate Shooting - Timothy Meads
Gov Jeff Colyer was briefed on the incident as he arrived to a congressional forum hosted by the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. Bailiff said the inmate was being taken across the street from the jail, to the services building, for a court hearing.

The right-back has been linked with moves away from north London over the past couple of summers, with Manchester United and Juventus reportedly interested in his services despite a lack of progression to fulfil his early potential.

Petr Cech has been Arsenal's last line of defence for the last three seasons, but the veteran Czech is now 36 years of age.

The 26-year-old was unfortunate to miss out on a place in the German World Cup squad but I think he'll be an excellent addition to the Arsenal team and will certainly be an upgrade on Cech and Ospina.

He now has six caps to his name, but was overlooked for World Cup 2018 duty this summer.
