Bernd Leno to Arsenal: Fee agreed; medical next

Arsenal have settled on a fee with Bayer Leverkusen for goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

BBC Sport says Arsenal have agreed a fee - reported to be 22m euros (£19.3m) - for Leno.

The 26-year-old German, who has been at Leverkusen since 2011, is yet to have a medical with the Premier League club.

Petr Cech and David Ospina are the Gunners' frontline goalkeepers, and it is unclear who would make way for Leno.

Arsenal are also optimistic about reaching a deal to sign 22-year-old Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira, who is at the World Cup with Uruguay.
