Both would aid the north Londoners' defence considerably, with 26-year old Leno replacing Petr Cech between the sticks and Sokratis likely to partner Laurent Koscielny in the heart of the defence.

SportBild claim a deal has been struck at £20million with Bayer Leverkusen, though the Gunners still need to agree terms with Leno before the move can be completed.

Arsenal have seen two well known players leave the Emirates this summer, injury riddled midfielder Santi Cazorla, who served admirably with the team for six seasons and the retiring German global Per Mertesacker.

The rumour - reposted by a fan account called "teamberndleno" - came from another German publication, Kicker, who suggested Leno was in London.


Torreira is now on worldwide duty for Uruguay ahead of the World Cup.

Emery is having to manage a restricted budget this summer following big spending on wages and fees over the previous two years amid what will be a second successive season out of the Champions League.

It is believed that Leverkusen are willing to accept less than Leno's £24.6million release clause, but want around £19.4million plus bonuses for the six-time Germany worldwide.

Arsenal remain in talks with Sampdoria over a move for midfielder Lucas Torreira, although a source has told ESPN FC that no deal has yet been finalised.
