Arsenal have completed another deal, and whilst Gunners fans have mixed opinions on their latest arrival, it seems that rival fans rate the signing higher!
A look on Twitter will show you that Arsenal fans have mixed emotions on Leno’s arrival. He’s made some clangers in his time that are doing the rounds, but what seems to be being ignored is his good qualities, after all, all keepers make mistakes and Leno is still very young at 26, so for £18million, he appears good value.
Take a look at how rival fans reacted on Twitter below:
Leno is a great signing for #AFC.

Leno is a good signing, specially at 20. Dunno why LFC werent all over that when theyve got shitting Karius

Arsenal doing good in this window. Idk why i see some of their fans are against the signing of Leno. He is a good goalkeeper and anyone but Cech is an upgrade atm. 20m for Leno is a very good deal!

After a slightly shaky start Arsenal have started to make some good signings. How they got Leno for £18 million is baffling to me. Was he in the last year of his contract or something?

Arsenal have made a pretty underrated signing in Bernd Leno. Very curious to see if he adjusts to the Prem!

Leno is a keeper who showed a lot of promise as a youngster, but one who has struggled to iron out the mistakes in his game since maturing. Emery and co. must feel there is still potential to be unearthed in Leno, who is a somewhat lively goalkeeper – he could be compared to Woijech Szczesny.
The fact that the likes of Atletico Madrid and Napoli were interested is also an encouraging sign.
