Arsenal have completed ths signing of 26 year old German shot stopper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen.
The German becomes the second signing of new head coach Unai Emery.
He faces a fight for the number one spot with veterans Petr Cech and David Ospina still at the club.
“For me it’s a dream to play for Arsenal,” Leno told the Premier League club’s website.
“In Germany, Arsenal are so famous and when I heard it (transfer), I was a little bit nervous, but at that moment it was clear for me: I wanted to sign for Arsenal.”
Leno added: “I’ll try to help the team to come back to the Champions League and to win some trophies. Arsenal belong in the Champions League.
“Now it’s a new chapter for the club. I spoke to Unai Emery and he said that he believes I’m a good goalkeeper, and that he wanted me to join.”
Emery said Leno was a “goalkeeper of high quality and experience”, and he will now join a squad where veteran Petr Cech and David Ospina, playing for Colombia at the World Cup, have been the first-choice keepers.
