Arsenal fans are excited to see Bernd Leno in action next season

Arsenal supporters are excited to see goalkeeper Bernd Leno play for the club after they confirmed his transfer from Bayer Leverkusen earlier this week.

The German international made over 300 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit before making the switch to the English Premier League and arrives with a solid reputation.

The goalkeeping position is one Arsenal badly needed depth for with Petr Cech’s form noticeably dwindling season by season. The capture of Leno will ensure there is strong competition for the number one spot under new boss Unai Emery next term.

Leno ticks plenty of boxes for the Gunners, with not just strong German top-flight experience, but plenty in the UEFA Champions League too, which is the level that they want to return to as soon as possible.

Will the 26-year-old be a success?

Arsenal fans certainly think so, taking to Twitter to share their excitement about the signing and what it means about Unai Emery’s early days in charge of the club…
