Unai Emery asks Arsenal to sign 29-year-old La Liga star


The FC guys answer your tweets on Arsenal's next No. 1 goalkeeper, what a 48-team World Cup will be like, Antoine Griezmann's decision and more.

The report claims that Arsenal will pay in the region of £48m to complete the two transfers. Leno certainly will be an upgrade but his arrival would mean the end of tenure for either Petr Cech or David Ospina.

Arsenal new boss Unai Emery see the German shot stopper as the flawless addition to his squad following Cech's inconsistent performances late in the Premier League and uncertainty over David Ospina future with the club.

Arsenal have been locked in talks with Leverkusen over a deal for Leno for several weeks and the goalkeeper is poised to make the switch to the Emirates.

Leno has six caps for Germany, but wasn't picked for the 2018 World Cup.

Emery has set out to reshape the Arsenal defence, with deals lined up for Borussia Dortmund's Sokratis and German worldwide Bernd Leno.

Bild add that Leno has informed Leverkusen that he wants to leave the club after a seven-year spell - and he's heading to north London.
