German goalkeeper Leno, 26, has joined Arsenal from Bayer Leverkusen for £19.2m on a five-year deal.

Unai Emery wants Arsenal to sign experienced Valencia midfielder Ever Banega, according to a report.

Emery highlighted Leno's experience and quality following his arrival.

The move for Leno, who would cost around £22 million and narrowly missed out on a place in the Germany World Cup squad, suggests that either Petr Cech or David Ospina will be sold.

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

'He has been a top performer and regular number one goalkeeper with Leverkusen in the Bundesliga for the past seven years'.

Leverkusen sporting director Jonas Boldt said: "We brought Bernd in 2011 as a very young keeper and immediately gave him great responsibility".

While Leno was part of the Germany squad that won the Confederations Cup in 2017, he failed to earn a place in Joachim Low's 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation, as Manuel Neuer recovered from injury in time to earn a call-up.

It is a big boost of confidence for the right-back, who has been a target for Juventus and Barcelona and Manchester United.

Arsenal unveiled Leno just hours after the club revealed their new-look coaching team under Unai Emery.
