Lacazette to be unveiled at Arsenal today

Alexandre Lacazette is set to unveiled as an Arsenal player on Wednesday at the Emirates stadium after completing a medical at the Gunners' training ground on Tuesday.

It is believed the former Lyon man has put pen to paper on a five-year deal at the Emirates Stadium after Arsenal agreed a club-record deal with the Ligue 1 side which could rise to £52m over the course of his contract.

According to ArsenalFanTV‏, The France international who had verbally agreed to join Atletico Madrid this summer but saw the deal collapse last month after Atletico's transfer ban was confirmed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport will be unveiled at the club on Wednesday.

Arsenal's opening bid of £39m was turned down last month, but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas had confirmed a deal was likely to be completed after the sides met on a fee that would eclipse the £42.5m Arsenal paid for Mesut Ozil four years ago.

The 26-year-old's boasted the highest chance conversion rate in Europe's top five leagues last season (38.9 per cent).

His record of 28 league goals last term was more than the combined tally of Arsenal quartet Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez.
