Bernd Leno was just signed by Arsenal for a reported £19.3m fee. The Bundesliga goalkeeper is all set to join his fellow countrymen Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi as a member of the Gunners squad. Leno is Unai Emery’s second signing after Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner. Leno seems quite ecstatic to find a home in the English team. On Arsenal's official website, Leno said, "For me it's a dream to play for Arsenal.” He added, "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 seems extremely determined to contribute to the team, especially after a reassuring conversation with his new manager. He said, "I'll try to help the team to come back to the Champions League and to win some trophies. Arsenal belongs 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 is quite excited to have him on board too. He called Leno, "a goalkeeper of high quality and experience”. While fans were quite excited to hear this news, they also seemed to be very interested in Leno’s girlfriend. So interested that they are choosing to message her rather than the football star. 

With a grand total of 31,000 followers on Instagram, Sophie Christin sure is winning a lot of hearts. Her latest post sent fans on a whirlwind of excitement. With great excitement, her followers welcomed the beauty to London. Many said “welcome to Arsenal” in both English and German. One said, “Quality addition to the Arsenal WAGs.” Some others requested her to take good care of Arsenal’s newest member. They said, “Take good care of him, we need him strong and happy. Welcome to London, have a good time!”

The positive comments don’t just stop at this. She received a lot of compliments for her beauty as well. Her comments section is often filled with words like "beautiful", "fine" and "perfection". One said, "You look so beautiful." Another added, "Wow no words needed."

Since it’s World Cup season and football is in the air, Christin is not the only girlfriend to attract fan attention. Brazilian superstar player Roberto Firmino's wife Larissa Firmino and Serbian midfielder Adem Ljajic's girlfriend Sofija Milosevic are just two of many others who have been getting a lot of fan love for supporting their significant others on social media.
