Bernd Leno confident of settling quickly at Arsenal: Special to see old friends

New Arsenal signing Bernd Leno is confident of settling in quickly.

Leno has spoken of his new Arsenal team-mates after joining on Tuesday from Bayer Leverkusen.

Discussing former opponent Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Leno told Arsenal's official website: “Yes, it will be special because in the past I've always played against him.

“He's so fast and as a goalkeeper you have to respect his qualities, his speed. Now we'll train together and I hope he'll score for us."

Leno added: “I already know Musti (Shkodran Mustafi) and Mesut Ozil from the national team, plus [Granit] Xhaka, Aubameyang and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan from the Bundesliga. I talked to Musti about Arsenal many months ago.

“He said it's a fantastic club with a fantastic stadium and fantastic fans. I watched games on the TV in Germany and yes, Arsenal is a fantastic club."
