  • Arsenal agree deal to sign Lucas Torreira

Adding Leno would give Arsenal three starting-caliber goalkeepers, as the German would have to compete with Petr Cech and David Ospina.

The former Chelsea goalkeeper has just one year left on his current contract.

Bernd Leno will cost the gunners £20million to get him and it is reported that the club is close to agreeing personal terms with the German worldwide.

The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we'll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe.

Leverkusen are said to want a minimum of £17.5m for the goalkeeper, according to the reports.

Technology helps France beat gritty Australia 2-1 in Group C
On 17 minutes France 'keeper Hugo Lloris was forced to turn a unsafe deflection from Corentin Tolisso around his far post. Australia maintained their defensive shape in the second half but a lapse in concentration was exploited by the French.

Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey are both ahead of Wilshere in the pecking order at Arsenal, while the club are close to completing the £26m signing of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria which would create even more competition.

Arsenal were tracking Adli as early as March, when a source close to PSG revealed that Manchester City, Barcelona and Bayern Munich were also keen, but he was expected to sign professional terms in Paris until Emery's departure was confirmed.

Arsenal are now attempting to negotiate the signing of Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund for £16m, so funds will begin to become incredibly tight if Arsenal were to then go on to trigger Torreira's release clause.

Arsenal finished way down in sixth in the Premier League last season.
