The deal was confirmed after the Gunners a fee of €25 million with Bayer Leverkusen for the 26-year-old stopper. His arrival signals the end for either Petr Cech or David Ospina.
“We are very pleased that Bernd Leno will be joining us,” coach Unai Emery said in a statement.
“Bernd is a goalkeeper of high quality and experience. He has been a top performer and regular number one goalkeeper with Leverkusen in the Bundesliga for the past seven years. We are all excited that Bernd has chosen Arsenal Football Club and look forward to start working with him in pre-season.”
Leno has been regarded as one of the top goalkeepers in the Bundesliga for the past few seasons and was part of the Germany team that won the Confederations Cup last summer.
