Arsenal have reportedly agreed a £22m deal with Bayer Leverkusen for the signing of goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Gunners boss Unai Emery, who has already signed Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus to shore up his team's defence, will allegedly add 26-year-old stopper Leno to his ranks in the coming days.

German source Bild reports that Arsenal will make and announcement about the capture of the goalkeeper from the Bundesliga outfit imminently.

Leno made 38 appearances for Leverkusen last term, but missed out on a spot in Joachim Low's 23-man roster for the World Cup.

Arsenal are also alleged to be in advanced talks with Borussia Dortmund over the signing of defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
