They say former Paris Saint-Germain boss Emery is desperate to bolster his options between the sticks and in central midfield.

It is claimed Arsenal started talks with Leno and Torreira last week.

The move for Leno, who would cost around £22m and just missed out on being picked for Germany’s World Cup side, suggests either Petr Cech, 36, or David Ospina, 29, will be told to move on.

The 22-year-old holding midfielder Torreira, meanwhile, is in Russia with highly-fancied Uruguay.

His club Sampdoria are reportedly focusing on the structure of a proposed deal.
