Arsenal are set to have a stunning beauty in the unofficial Wife and Girlfriends (WAGs) Association at the club after pictures emerged of Sophie Christin, the girlfriend of new Arsenal keeper, Bernd Leno. The 13-time English champions announced the signing of the German International on a five-year deal on Tuesday, but fans were quick to spot the woman behind him off the pitch.
Christin is an Instagram fan favourite, boasting over thirty thousand followers, with that number set to increase in the following months especially if Leno does well in between the sticks in the red and white. Leno becomes the third German in the Gunners dressing room, joining Mesut Ozil and ShkodranMustafi, but it would appear that Arsenal fans are lost in the beauty of Christin off the pitch. With a number of racy pictures, Christin is one that is guaranteed to generate headlines in north London.
The Premier League is known not only for its exciting football, with the news off the pitch almost as important to the global appeal of the competition. Christin also regularly posts pictures of herself and Leno enjoying some downtime together, with many Gunners fans hoping that she can make the acclimatisation of the 26-year-old to the English game a little bit easier.
Leno joined Arsenal to offer competition to veteran goalkeeper, Petr Cech as Unai Emery continues to shape The Gunners squad in his image. In his seven years with former club Bayer Leverkusen, Leno made over 230 appearances in the Bundesliga, earning plaudits for his positional awareness, shot-stopping and a good command of his area.
